Nose: rich, sherried malt. Toffee applies, fresh and dried fruit (apples and grape), licorice, vanilla cream and lemon zest. Fresh-cut wood develops with time. A wonderful aroma.

Taste: medium- to full-bodied. A brilliant arrival of juicy, fruity malt is soon overtaken by tangy sherry. Some spices but overall pretty gentle. Becomes sour at the back of the tongue.

Finish: sweet and sour fruitiness. Long-lasting.

Balance: pretty much what I was hoping for when I purchased this bottle. Rich, sherried malt, no colouring, 43% alc/vol, and a deep, satisfying aroma and flavour. The finish is perhaps overly tangy but not enough to mar the experience. A solid value and great malt overall.
