Nose: Heavy on the sherry in a very nice way, following on with a terry's chocolate orange.

Taste: Sweet & syrupy with various dried fruits jumping around in your mouth, its hard to capture them all as they swirl into each other in perfect harmony.

Finish: Long lovely sweetness with a smoky note running up the rear almost like a good cigar.

Comments: This is an elegant & meaty sherry, a true classic speyside all rolled into one. This is a must for anyone's whisky shelve. Also getting very hard to get hold of a bottle these days since production has stopped on the Flora Faunas and what is out there is all that is left.

Nice review - I bought a bottle of this when I visited Dalwhinnie distillery a couple of years ago. I did really like it and consider it a hidden gem but not sure I'd score it that highly, (though I am more Islay than Speyside). Might have to get myself another bottle soon however.
