A cask strength whisky has quietly been making a name for itself over the past few years and has now attracted quite a crowd of enthusiastic devotees who praise the big, rich flavours of this Speyside malt.
Colour: Rich and dark.
Nose: A marked sherry character, possibly honey and dark fruits.
Taste: Can be drunk at full strength but develops with water. Big, mouth filling, Christmas cake, dried fruits, possibly some citrus and chocolate notes.
Finish: Expect a drawn-out finish, perhaps with evolving spices, oak and some smoky notes.
