Nose

Reluctant peppery, oaky, a little bit of banana and some other fruits

Taste

Pretty peppery, oaky, with some vanilla notes. Rather dry sherry. the subtle sweetness comes up later also with some fruity notes - primarily bananas again.

Finish

Long and oaky - a little bit of the typical bitterness is also there

Comments

Very good, but rather a bit dry

Official Tasting Notes:

Nose: Rich, complex and full with luxurious tropical fruits of peach, mango and banana, complimented with sultanas, sherry and gentle oak spice.

Palate: Sweet and soft with near perfect balance of fruit; mango, orange, figs and sweet sultanas, followed by a wave of sherry, toffee and ginger oak spice.

Finish: Warm, soft and gently spiced.

“I like my whisky old and my women young.”
