Nose: Rich, spicy. Thick, fruity malt loaf. Toasted cinnamon buns, rum. Stem ginger in syrup. Sherry, pepper.
Palate: Thick, chewy. Sherry. Fruit, ripe and lush. Rum spice. Pepper.
Finish: Spiced rum, heavy, buttery, oak, allspice.
One of the best family casks that I have tried, complex and intense. A must have for those who call themselves farclas enthusiasts and have the wallet to make a 300 pound whisky purchase.
