    Tastingnotes by the distillery
    • Nose
      Rich,sweet figs infused with vanilla and ground almonds,balanced with crisp ginger spice.
    • Taste
      A tremendous balance of mixed candied peel and stewed dark fruits sprinkled with dark Demerara. Delicious waves of toffee,cracked barley and warm oak spices combined.
    • Finish
      Long and elegant.

    Cask #244 / 18yr / 1996 / Oloroso
    A: Deep amber, long slow legs.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Old fashioned home-made sherry trifle, blackcurrant jam, fresh squidgy bread, slight bacon aroma.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Initial zingy peppery punch, followed by a lovely rich and thick sherry dominance. Then you get a dry and woody bitterness appearing that then turns back into a big sweet and slightly smokey mouth coating oiliness on the back of the tongue.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long and smokey. Imagine smoking a cigar that’s made of liquorice
