Very Good

Taste note

  • Colour:

    Deep amber

  • Nose:

    Buttery cinnamon toast, concentrated raisin in the background, astringent woody touches, glacé cherry, barrel char.

  • Palate:

    Big sweet butter hit, with maple syrup, brown sugar, plump raisins, nutmeg, milk chocolate and more of the char from the nose.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, with chocolate, raisins and more char.

  • Comment:

    A sweet dram with good levels of sherry spice and richness, although not overly heavy. There is a touch of welcome bitter char that reigns the dram in before it can become too sweet, providing excellent balance.
