Distribution of ratings for this:
Double cask matured in sherry and traditional oak casks, whatever those are, presumable second fill or bourbon casks. Whatever they were, they have made a light malt with a slightly rosy hue.
A very expressive nose with a nice balance of malt and fruit. The fruits are varied and include dried sultanas and raisins as well as fresher flavours of apples and plums. I also get a touch of aniseed in there as a spicy note.
Medium weight on the palate, malty again, but now with cinnamon and cloves. The fruitiness that remains from the nose is almost exclusively the dried fruits. The finish is quite dry and malty and of a good length.
This is quite a classy accessible little dram, definitely one I’d recommend to newbie’s.
