    Beautiful sherry! Marzipan dark fruits Demerara honey vanilla , a Christmas cake delight, that’s really excellent

    Oh my what a dream dram. Dark, yet fresh. Perfect combination in a sherry dram. Yet another lovely sherry Expression from Moray. Underestimated distillery. Great the way the distillate comes through With fresh fruits, Strawberries and the earthly notes comes through. Love it.

      Marzipane. Red berries. Cinnamon. Pear. Vanilla and banana. Next sip The Strawberries are more distinct. Orange marmelade. Peaches and nutty. Then more Camphor and menthol. Earthly notes, apricots and liquerice. After 15 mins, more dark nottes again With raisins, blackcurrants and some oaky notes.

      Not very thick texture. More of the red berries at first. Oranges marmelade and soft spices. Some of that lovely 'old bottle syndrome' shines through the sherry wall. Pears, kiwis and apricots. Sweet liqueruce

      Long and lovely finish!! More towards black berries in the finish. Fantastic deep vs fresh Balance. Some oaky bitterness. Then big on Strawberries. What a mouthwatering Development. Just superb

    Thanks whiskyCon for this lovely dram.

      Lovely old school sherry malt. Elegant toffee, milk chocolate, plenty of dried fruits like plums and dates, with a whiff of wood smoke and tobacco leaf. After a while, some metallic note and nail polish. The nose is so harmonious in complexity, you can nose it all day without getting bored.

      The nose transfer to the palate so coherently, absolutely a beauty! Lovely arrival with that old school sherry sweetness, balanced with the right amount of oakiness and nuttiness. The dried fruits really hits the right spot, and the oranges is really nice.

      Slightly nutty and dry, with orange peel, some oakiness and oranges.
