Review and Tasting
Sampled on 10/09/2013
Clear, mid to deep golden amber.
Christmas cake, stewed fruit, raisins and sultanas with crushed mint leaves with almond, sandalwood, thyme spice and marzipan. Faint sulphur.
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.
Earthy tar, toasty oak and lingering mince pie spice. A most Christmasy of malts.
