Nose: Delicious dry sherry aromas mingles with cinnamon and clove. Toffee apple notes give way to mixed peel gradually developing into subtle malty undertones.
Palate: Smooth and creamy; ripe apricots and stewed plum coated in orange marmalade lead into flavours of bitter dark chocolate highlighted by notes of blackberries, blackcurrants, and sticky fig jam.
Finish: Long and lingering with nuanced aniseed, candied citrus peel, and charred oak.
One of the few richly peated Highland malts and now becoming a very well respected single malt after many years of being best known for its use in The Teacher's blended Scotch.
