Nose: Complex, great refinement. The oak has nurtured an exquisite smoke, honey and toffee notes emerge with a balancing citric character, a little sherried perhaps with juicy sultanas and a touch of winter spice.
Palate: Resplendent with sweetness and lush creamy notes. Barley glowing, with beautiful spicy smoke and perfect depth of oak.
Finish: Sublime, dry oaky notes retaining good barley sweetness and little whirls of smoke on the tail.
