The depth of colour in this whisky is very impressive a ruby copper like colour, very rich and enticing. The nose is sweet with molasses and clearly enriched by sherry casks, smoke is presents along with a touch of liquorish and some wood, maybe a spicy hint of clove as well.

The mouth feel is full and syrupy in texture, sweet sherry flavours are massive at first but give way to more subtlety with time with cinnamon and clove spice, butter and some orange zest. The orange zest bitterness is carried through to the dry warming finish with some bitter chocolate and black coffee.

As an after diner dram, or something to sip by the fireside late evening there is not much to fault here. Not much malt character but plenty of sherry goodness to enjoy.
