Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland
Tasted August 13, 2022
(Good Spirits Co. Glasgow – Virtual Whisky Tasting, 12 August 2022). Nose: Orchard fruit, sweet, baking spice, ginger Palate: Sweet, chocolate cherries, dates, dried figs, baking spices Finish: Long finish. Nutty, toasted oak, dates, raisins. Slightly burnt millionaire's shortbread. 10 years in 500L Oloroso sherry butts, followed by 2.5 years in Sauternes casks This is a cracker! Rich, chewy and heavy. Sweet dried fruit and an interesting slightly burned note (in a good way!) The Sauternes adds a little sweet fruitiness. Too dangerously drinkable for 58.2% ABV. Came second out of the six drams, with 15% of the final vote for favourite of the night. 77% of those present said they enjoyed the whisky.
