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.
