"This sherry side of the whisky shows first on the nose, with stewed fruits, prunes, and citrus peel, alongside milk chocolate and cocoa powder. The palate is rich and full, offering chocolate covered cherries, and a multifaceted profile, from vinous-grapey, to jammy, to rancio. All this with the more traditional soft floral, orchard fruit, and hay Speyside characteristics as well. The finish is bold but smooth, with chocolate syrup, oak and tannic spice, and orange zest."
