Review and Tasting


Sampled on 10/09/2013

Appearance:

Clear, mid to deep golden amber.

Aroma:

Christmas cake, stewed fruit, raisins and sultanas with crushed mint leaves with almond, sandalwood, thyme spice and marzipan. Faint sulphur.

Taste:

Rich honeyed sherry balanced by oaky tannins, coal tar, mocha coffee and Christmasy spice. Fabulously fruity for a malt of this age with orange zest, berries and tropical fruit.

Aftertaste:

Earthy tar, toasty oak and lingering mince pie spice. A most Christmasy of malts.
