Bourbon and Sherry Casks
Highland (Isle of Skye)
18 - 22 PPM
70, 75 cl
18 year old
Rich and fruity Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind.
Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar, and toffee. Intense layers of fruitiness and peat.
Medium length and chilli 'catch' in the finish.
