    • Finish
      84 84
      sweet, like after the types of jam described above, a little watery, which is frustrating

    Very nice whisky. Fruity nose, taste with notes of herbs, fruit and a nice touch of sherry.

    Tasting Notes:

    Color: mahogany.

    Nose: rich combination of dried fruit and candied fruit zests, spiciness of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, toffee and fine oak.

    Taste: lush, soft and complex notes of dried fruit, herbs, toasted oak, milk chocolate and freshly roasted nuts lead to a long and creamy finale with beautifully balanced sherry influence.
