Tasted at:
01/01/2020
Nose:
Sherry, red apples, raisins and prunes, sweet orchard berries, blood oranges, toffee, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, a hint of dark roast coffee, very light woody notes
Palate:
Sweet, punchy and spicy (ginger, pepper mix), blueberry jam, oranges, Christmas cake with all kinds of season spices, caramel, gentle dry oak
Finish:
Spicy, dry, sweet, berry marmalade, some nuttiness, dark chocolate and leathery notes, caramelized orange zest, soft oak at the end
Conclusion:
Pleasant blended malt, sherried and spiced and fits very well to winter season. Rather punchy and spicy with all kinds of peppers on the palate and I would personally prefer the milder version of this dram. This expression lacks complexity but on the opposite is well balanced and tasty. A good choice for Christmas time though
