Pronounced with an immediate air of confidence. Rich apples combined with tropical mango in some form of frangipane pastry-type affair. Ginger and cinnamon along with orange blossom and a air or musky incense provide deeper aromas. Deep and complex.
Taste: Real viscosity in the body of this whisky. Sherry flavours are upfront with plums, prunes and a smattering or raisans and sultanas - high degree of sweet richness here. Almonds (frangipane right?) provide a discernable nuttiness. Chocolate alongside a real earthy umami flavour. Oak is ever-present, so spicing is heavy but not sharp and favouring cinnamon. Oozes quality.
Long, warming, earthy and spiced with an ever so slight edge of salinity providing bite.
