Review by Ardbeg

Colour

Deep orange/gold

Nose

Sweet, fruity and floral with hints of smoke. Flowering currants and brambles, apricot syrup and figs. Rich chocolate notes. Water reveals chocolate limes, orange blossom and honeycomb.

Palate

Sweetness of toffee and barley sugar, wafts of smoke, treacle and Parma violets. Sugared almonds, chocolate powder and ground nutmeg resting on the palate.

Finish

The finish is long with a curious mixture of sugared almonds, mint humbugs and smoke.
