Nose: Big Sherry. Very Macallan-esque with butter and toffee on top.

Palate: The palate is also influenced by sherry , dried fruit, and some malt and spice. It’s not very impressive, but nice.

Finish: Dried fruit and cocoa.

A nice daily dram, but not over complex, and for malts aged 18 years one would expect a little more.

Off to the Sheep dip 1990 , one whisky I was looking forward to trying. This lovely whisky contains malts from : Ardbeg, Dalmore and Fettercairn, which are then married for 10 years in first fill casks. What an interesting combination. And at last, some peat influence in our blended malts.
