Nose
Slick figs, Caramac bars, a hint of sweet smoke. Becoming fudge-like in time.
Palate
Full-bodied yet mellow, with sherry, dates and sultanas. A liquid Christmas cake indeed.
Finish
Long and warming.
Comment
Keep this for Christmas and drink it with the pudding.

Rob Allanson

89
Nose
All the classic sherry matured notes, plums, raisins, a hint of all spice and dried candy fruits. Develops into tablet after a while.
Palate
Those Christmas spices come through. Dries slightly but then becomes mellow and full of figs and dark fruits.
Finish
Comforting and mellow.
Comment
Another release showing this distillery is punching well above its weight with great whisky.
