COLOUR: Light Gold. NOSE: First impressions are of toasted vanilla and subtle hints of oak. Aromas of rich dried fruits and leather follow, laced with dark chocolate and blackberries. TASTE: A wonderful burst of spice hits the tongue combined with a refreshing lemony citrus tang. As the taste develops a rich caramel sweetness with traces of cinnamon comes to the fore. FINISH: The finish is smooth with soft oak and honey sweetness lingering gently on the tongue. The spice continues to tingle and dark chocolate flavours develop to give luxurious texture and a fitting finale to an elegant whisky.
