Mortlach at it best!
Complex but Perfectly balanced.

Complex, Satisfying
Buttery, flaky cinnamon twist pastry fresh from the bakery, brown sugar and molasses, caramel with chocolate swirls; occasional asparagus cooked in balsamic vinegar peeks through, and a finish that crescendos at a rapid rate and lingers with pears and baked apples.

Good quality
Definitely needs water at 56.6% abv. Initially there was more sherry on the nose, but after a day or two it became more about the spirit. Citrus and Spiced Apples on the nose, with some hints of caramel in the back. Definitely a floral/herbal spirit quality on the nose. On the palate, again, spiced apples with hints of barley & caramel. I found the spirit too dominating for a 23yo.
