This Speyside single malt is blended from whisky aged in five ex-bourbon barrels and four ex-sherry butts, all aged in Warehouse 24. The blend from these nine casks was transferred to Tun 1401 - a traditional oak marrying vessel for several months prior to bottling. Released June 2012.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/07/2012

Appearance

Clear, coppery amber with polished bronze highlights.

Aroma

Stewed and tropical dried fruit with cream soda/creamy custard vanilla, floral parma violet and delicate lightly gingery and cinnamon spice.

Taste

(diluted to approx. 43%) Smooth and easy yet flavoursome. Yumm! Honeyed sherry sweetness balances dry lightly spiced oaky tannins.

Aftertaste

Buttery vanilla and delicate spice. Harmonious but perhaps a tad too easy – David’s made a floozy.
