Nose: Floral, intense nose with hints of sherried peels, apple blossom and manuka honey. A little cigar leaf character develops, with hints of cherry.
Palate: Thick, creamy palate with notes of lavender and allspice. Hints of cedar, toasted oak and mixed peels. A little marmalade too.
Finish: Floral, spicy finish. Toasted almonds and oak.
Overall: Floral and fruity - a marvellous Auchentoshan.
