If ever there was a perfect summer scotch then this is surely it. 15 Years in ex-bourbon caks with another 3 in ex-Oloroso sherry make this a perfectly balanced dram in my opinion.
It's 'big', but not in a loud way. Medium-to full bodied, creamy and with a very slight hint of smoke. A gentle giant of a whisky!
Nose: a bit floral (but not sickly so) - geranium & jasmin, with grapefruit, crème brulée
Palate: Lychees, toffee, orange zest, more grapefruit, a bit of honey and a delicious malty-biscuity quality that I happen to adore...
Finish: not incredibly long but very satisfying - soft citrus, some oak, and finally that biscuity finish that some have described as 'doughy'...
In a word: understated & superb! (ok, two words then...)
