Picked this one up in November of 2015 and popped it open tonight.

Nose - Sweet and woody fresh ripe oak coupled with strong hints of dried fruit and raisins. Moving along we get butterscotch with grapes on the side. Add to that some brown sugar, and big sherry with the slightest hint of char and extremely faint smoke. This is one potent and sweet nose.

Palate - Woody, sweet arrival packed with those fruits, raisins, grapes, berries and lemony honey. What was in the nose is VERY much reflected in the palate.

Finish - Fairly long. Slightly dry, yet sweet, oaky wood, with a trailing of light spice and warmth.

Conclusion: It's a dessert dram. It's packed with sweetness throughout, almost like some sort of syrup. I would drink this daily if it wasn't for the price. Quality stuff, from start to finish you will not be disappointed. (This review was written 3 drams in ;) )

Left it out for 1.5 hours, took a sip and all of a sudden huge coffee note coming through. Never had this happen. Chocolate, creamy coffee. The finish includes this as well. Very interesting.
