Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail
Expansion: sherry casks
Region: Speyside, Scotland
Nose: sweet sherry flavors and lots of wood. Almond marzipan, caramel and raisins. Dark fruits, old leather and dried apricots. Behind it a little fresher fruit: apples and peaches, along with toffee. In addition, a lot of chocolate and nougat, cigar box and cedar wood. Very complex.
Palate: Sweet dark berries, dark coffee, cinnamon and many other spices. Wood, slightly dry cedar and again sweet oak, nuts and malt. A little black tea, mocha and again the leather. Wonderful!
Finish: long and dry, with an emphasis on tobacco, wood and chocolate.
Conclusion: I love the part, which is so great!
