Nose: Really fresh fruity aromas of granny smith apples and fresh cut pineapple, developing rainforest canopy aromas with time. Finally the sherry cask influence announces itself with a fanfare of dried fruits.
Palate: Initially milk chocolate and redcurrants, followed by a wave of warm winter spices.
Finish: Still surprisingly fresh with citrus peel and sweet oxidised sherry.
Overall: This malt is surprisingly fresh for a whisky of its age. There are plenty of fruity flavours emboldened by warmer spice and chocolate notes.
