Nose: Initial cinnamon, green apple and meringue with clove and anise developing.
Palate: Red apple, nutty oak, cakeyness and again clove develops to add wonderful depth.
Finish: Dates, sultanas, fruit salad and something unexpectedly herbal pops up too (a little menthol?).
Overall: The nuttier, sweeter sibling of the Oloroso cask matured Darkness! Aberlour, there are still plenty of dark depths to explore here.
