Nose: A sweet, rich, spicy nose with a good touch of nutmeg, gives way to vanilla, honey and spices. A little turmeric too perhaps.
Palate: Big and oily. More than a hint of ginger, with apples, vanilla cream, pears and pastry. It's a very big whisky, and whilst not massively complex, more than compensates with a huge intensity of flavour.
Finish: Lasts for a long, long time. Big on dry spices and clove-studded oranges.
