    I bought this for my 10 year wedding anniversary, as it seemed one of the more interesting 10 year old scotches available at my local store. Overall my wife and I loved it and have probably given half the bottle to family and friends to share the experience with them. Nose - malt forward, lightly toasted oak, dark sherry fruits, some brown sugar, some brighter fruits in the background as well Palette - it costs the tongue nicely and is quite rich, spiced plums and apples, molasses and brown sugar, some sharp but not unpleasant sour notes and a tiny bit of oak tannin bitterness Finish - long lasting ripe and stewed fruits, medium burn but oh so comforting
