Pale gold in colour and nicely packaged up in a metal tube, gives a feeling of quality that cardboard can’t. Rich aromas on opening the bottle just get better when poured and savoured, lightly smoky with plump sultanas, apricot jam, vanilla and a biscuit like malty smell.
This whisky has a thick creamy mouth coating body to it, a sweet profile containing the favours of oaty hobnob biscuits, apricots, almonds, vanilla and cinnamon. Quite exotic, but in no way unusual for a malt whisky.
The high alcohol content and full body ensures the finish is satisfyingly long with plenty of drying flavour development of the fruit, nuts and malt evident on the palate. The balance present in this whisky is superb, it might not stand out anywhere in particular, but the whole experience is one of stylish quality.
