From the Distiller: "A 19th-century-style whisky matured exclusively in Spanish oak Oloroso sherry butts, then bottled at cask strength. Dark, luxurious and powerful; a superb after-dinner malt.
"Deep, rich amber in color. An intoxicating aroma of mixed spices, praline and spiced orange, harmonising with rich, deep notes of Oloroso sherry. Flavors of orange, black cherries, dried fruit and ginger, spiked with dark bitter chocolate and enriched with sherry and oak. Full-bodied and creamy. Robust and intense finish with bitter-sweet notes of exotic spices, dark chocolate and oak." - Distillery
From Tastings.com: Intense roasted nuts, dark caramel, banana custard and rubber sap aromas follow through to a big bold and lightly tannic full body with with toffee, balsa wood and burnt hay accents. Finishes with a touch of smoked nuts, chocolate covered ginger and banana, mossy earth, and sherry. Interesting nutty sherry and spicy wood influence. Needs a touch of water to reveal the complexity.
