Official Tasting Notes
Nose – Sweet and nutty with notes of Manuka honey and maple syrup with praline and grilled hazelnuts; combine with rich aromas of freshly tanned leather, cigar tobacco, liquorice roots, dried thyme and heather blossom.
Palate – Richly elegant sherry merges with raw Islay peat, whilst bitter dark chocolate, black pepper, butterscotch sauce unites with vanilla and coffee beans, whilst a fruity flair is defined by Morello cherries and a touch of papaya.
Finish – Sweet, spicy and mouth warming, with notes of oak spices, chestnut cream and coconut lingering.
