Nose: Very spicy, bursting with cinnamon, ginger and cloves, followed by revealing notes of sweet candied fruits and demerara sugar.
Palate: The palate is fresh and vibrant, which belies its age. A grassy, herbal note fades to reveal mint, sweet spice and cloved oranges.
Finish: Spiced marmalade notes fade slowly on the tongue.
Overall: This whisky more than lives up to its name and provides a tasty, warming malt for those chilly evenings.
