Nose
Dark chocolate, candied orange peel, heavily polished antique furniture, walnut praline and peach melba. Rich and thick.
Palate
A massive hit of damp oak, fresh pine, rich honey (royal jelly) and toasted brown bread. A huge and hot palate, which is tamed slightly with water, enhancing the sulphur notes.
Finish
Dry, with the peach melba and rich honey coming to the fore.
Comment
Probably a little too long in cask, but if seriously mature whisky is your bag, you'll love this.

Nose
Big, muscular sherry character. Antique furniture. Cedar wood. Dates and figs. Damson plums. A touch of dark marmalade. Candied chestnut. Elegant intensity. Old oak.
Palate
Sweet at start then the alcohol bite tickles the tongue. A rich deep array of sherry flavours. Oak leads the way with style and panache.
Finish
Lingering, big oak, plenty of liquorice. Dried walnut. Chocolate and coffee beans.
Comment
Sherry shines through all the way with great elegance and complexity.
