Tasting Notes

Nose

Sherry with leather and smoke. Powerful, complex, resiny. Polished old furniture. Dried fruit, cider and cinnamon slowly emerge. Custardy notes.

Palate

Slight apple sourness with burnt wood and dark chocolate. Candied chestnuts.

Finish

Lingering but dry and slightly bitter.

Comment

A rich, luscious, venerable malt although time and sherry have silenced the distillery character. A real piece of history. No water, thanks!
