Nose
Moist, sweet, plumy fruitcake, treacle and dusty spices. Walnut, almond, sweet pecan. Becomes sweet, almost liqueur-like.
Palate
Crisp and less sweet thanks to the ABV. Armagnac-esque dried fruit, citrus and dusty sherry spices along with a touch of heather, walnut and juicy dried dates.
Finish
Very long, juicy and vibrant with lingering dried fruit and sherry spices. Finally there's a touch of grain to remind you that it is a blend.
Comment
I need a big cigar, my slippers and a leather armchair next to a roaring fire to appreciate this!

Nose
A fantastic nose with some really great age on it. This gives some wafts of black cherry, red apples, oak sawdust and a tiny, tiny hint of smoke.
Palate
The oak comes to the fore, with cinnamon spices, nutmeg and just a touch of clove. The oak spices develop showing off real age and complexity to this beautifully balanced product.
Finish
Great blending work, with good complexity and fab cherry and oak notes.
Comment
Shows off why whisky is aged in oak, all caught at the right time.
