Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: right off the bat it is tropical, dark fruits, soft leather, white chocolate and Glosset Raisins; dried apple and orange peels with some soft floral notes; it has the classic antique elements of an older sherried whisky.
Palate: very fruity with more tropical fruit: mango, papaya and melons, some raisin and darker fruits emerge; the whisky has notes of chocolate and dark spices like clove and anise but underneath there is a base of creamy vanilla and honey; there are also leathery, nutty and earthy tones but it is the fruits and chocolate that reign.
Finish: soft, medium long and still very fruity; elegant.
Distiller's Tasting Note
Nose: Waves of spicy dried fruit and creamy vanilla sweetness are accentuated by orange peel, green apple freshness and just a hint of cut flowers.
Taste: Full-bodied, intense and complex. Fruit cake, sticky toffee and seasoned leather are followed by signature notes of honey and lemons, leading eventually to a long, mouth-watering finish full of spice and sweetness.
