"A single malt that opens with a rancio-like quality? Yes, indeed. There's a malty richness and surprisingly mild tannins from the long aging. It has a classic dried fruit flavor and fleshy mouthfeel spiked with white pepper and that passionfruit nip at the finish familiar to long-aged single malt sippers. Leaves a delicate and appetizing Amontillado note. "
