I have been waiting to try this one for quite a while now and finally my dreams were answered by a client who sent me one as a thanks !! They say the best things in life are free and this Scotch has been no exception for me.

Nose: Strong whiff of the darkest of chocolate with a scatter of cherries and cherry stones along with the faintest waft of smoke from a bonfire fed with chestnut tree branches.

Palate: The chocolate has a strong presence here, not sweet but mysterious and dark. Not much in the way of fruit other than the cherries popping up again briefly. My tastebuds feel smothered but in the best way possible with the oiliness of the whisky having a big part to play in its body.

Finish: Has a fantastic length to it with a gentle warmth which doesn't leave for quite come time. Smoke wafts back into my nose and wraps around my tongue leaving a fantastic tingling sensation.

Well worth the wait is all I can say. Easy to drink without being boring or uninteresting. I can see me maintaining a constant supply of this for whenever I fancy a dram that I do not have to spend much effort with (the price doesn't hurt either!).
