Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/01/2016

Appearance

Clear, deep amber.

Aroma

Pungent, apple and pear with blackberry and blackcurrant boiled sweets (hard candy), well-done toast, vanilla, spicy oak, toffee and biscuity malt. Red apple notes are amplified with water.

Taste

Huge, dry, full-bodied palate with rich honey, praline, assertive spice, oak, sherry and dried fruit. Achieve the perfect balance with added water and reveal rich honeyed pear and Christmassy spice.

Aftertaste

Long spiced oak, orchard fruit and lingering smokiness.

Overall

A cask strength Highland sherry bomb with generous honeyed orchard fruit and Christmassy spice. Renowned for its value for money.
