Shows fantastic balance and poise as fruit rolls into spice, then into sweet herbal notes and back again, its characterful spirit clearly aided by excellent cask influence. Makes a luxurious aperitif.
Nose: Old fashioned toffee, caramelised red apples, demorera sugar, orange fondant, marzipan, buttery pastry, apricot glaze and hints of floral and spice notes.
Palate: Crisp apples, grassy-herbal medium body/mouthfeel, lemon curd, dusting of sweet icing sugar on refreshing ripe melon with some toasted oak creeping in too.
Finish: Green and red apples, sour notes of lemon balanced by sweet aromatic spices and warming oak along with hints of apricot glazed pastries.
A rare and unusual old whisky, subtle in style yet possessing considerable hidden depths.
