Nose: Lovely parma violets on the nose, followed by sherry with hints of pipe tobacco and spice. A touch of kirsch and acacia blossom.
Palate: Creamy, sweet palate entry - marmalade on top of soft malt and orange blossom honey. Hints of lavender and wood shavings. A little candied peel develops.
Finish: Long, spicy finish. Apple peel, a soupcon of almond and prune juice on the tail.
Overall: Fantastic - a wonderful interplay between the floral Auchentoshan and the richness from the sherry cask.
