Review by Highland Park

« This review is also available in Dutch »
Colour

Natural colour; dark red golden, clear and bright

Nose

Very rich, mature oak; chocolate; fudge

Palate

Full, rich burst of flavour; soft honey; nutty toffee

Finish

Rich, long and surprisingly sweet for its age

Conclusion

Characteristic honey sweetness developing into complex aromas of white chocolate, cinnamon, nuts and dark fruit. The finish is at once intensely sweet and gently smoky and goes on and on.

Note

The remarkable complexity of this whisky is due in part to the fact that half of it is matured in first fill Sherry casks. These are very expensive and generally used sparingly in the industry. However, they impart maximum flavour.
