Warming the glass reveals honey, vanilla, and pear drops. It’s delicately light, with a mouth-watering combination of maltiness, smokiness and sherry sweetness on the palate. Hints of dried fruit, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves tempt the taste buds further. A long, smooth and spicy finish, with a delicious, yet delicate, lingering smokiness. Gloriously depth and finish you would normally only expect of a much older dram.
