Product Description

Official Tasting Notes

Nose - A mellow nose overall, with very light prickle. The aroma is profound and complex: rich with dark fruits in liquor; prune juice and Oloroso sherry, sloes in gin, prunes in syrup. Old oak and soft leather to start with, developing into hard toffee and chocolate-covered coffee beans. A rich Christmas pudding too; all classic sherry cask notes. Later, savoury, meaty notes as The Beast of Dufftown is roused from its slumber. A drop of water suppresses much of this.

Palate - At natural strength, smooth and viscous in texture; mouth-drying and tannic. The wonderfully rich, fruity taste is immediately sweet, with damson fruit, lightly savoury with a trace of liquorice and spicy-dry, with a scented hint of cloves. Drying overall, with rich tannins. Sweeter and less tannic at reduced strength, with more sweet spiced fruit. Magnificent.

Finish - Seemingly endless and deeply impressive, with fruit and spiciness in perfect harmony and a warming glow spreading across the palate. Finally leaving the palate Official Tasting Notesdry, yet wreathed in a glorious rich afterglow.
