Clear, golden amber with burnished copper.
Sherry influenced with aromas of maple syrup, red apple and spicy oak. Wafts of waxed cotton jacket, Teflon oil, vanilla, overripe raspberries and struck match.
Sherry wine notes are also very evident on the soft, slightly honeyed lightly oaked palate.
Spicy fresh walnut and fresh cut wood shavings emerge in the salty, smoky, dry instant coffee finish.
The heavy wine notes partner well with this light whisky. A more integrated version of the 12 year old Special Reserve.
