Clear, golden amber.
A generous rum and raison nose with pencil shavings, toffee, buttery butterscotch and floral honey aromas.
Hydrated to approx. 40% yields the lightly spiced woody, yet slightly sweet palate betrays this whisky's long age but the oak is perfectly integrated with malted barley, honey and fudge.
This is a mellow of gentleman of a whisky but he has retained some of his youthful spice. Long, sweet barley finish with just enough spicy oak.
