Color: gold, relatively bright for sherry.
Aroma: Toffee, creamy with an earthy background note. Lots of vanilla, haystack and slightly burnt orange peel.
Despite its cask strength it comes gently and ingratiatingly into the nose. I could not recognize the "orange peel".
Taste: More creaminess on the palate, some raisins coated with chocolate, hints of strawberries and weak truffle oil.
In the aftertaste of some banana bread, becomes more citrusy with time before some heavier fruit notes take over.
Special feature: Single cask bottling, barrel size, non-chill-filtered, natural color, limited edition 558 bottles.
The distillery is the smallest distillery of Diageo, producing only about 400,000 liters of alcohol per year. Located near Balmoral Castle, which Queen Victoria and Prince Albert initially rented and later bought.
