    Seems this has some random batch variations going on. Had a US duty free bottle (bought/from 2007 I think) I really liked the mellow wood spices & marshmellow flavours of, then a local one from a recent batch, and that was fairly generic & boring.
    Score here is for the 2007 US 1000ml version...

    This is one of the scotches you bring to a tasting party for the 12 year

    class. Its nice and gives you a sense of the barrel types and flavors

    that go with them.

    First- and second-fill bourbon casks, then six to twelve months in sweet oloroso casks.
    • Nose
      Sherry and orange skins.
    • Taste
      Beautifully combined mellow flavours: nutty, sweet, sherry, very orangey fruitiness, heather, cinnamon spiciness.
    • Finish
      Long, tingling. Very warming.
