Clear, deep golden amber.
Tack room leathery nose with pungent maltyness and faint salt and seaweed beach aromas.
Sherry sweet, well-rounded palate with pronounced maltyness but apparently lacks the depth and polish access to the right inventory provides. Perhaps the blender did make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
Sultana noes emerge in the lightly peated, slightly smoky, leathery finish.
