Nose: Oily, smoky nose with hints of soft sherry and a touch of dry red wine. Blackcurrant, cooked plums and allspice.
Palate: Rich, very intense palate entry with cinnamon and cloves to the fore. Quite coastal, with sweet plumes of smoke and cooked fruit.
Finish: Dark chocolate and banana chips on the finish. Long and peaty.
Overall: A beautiful whisky - muscular and intense.
