A full 60% abv, yet the sweet, rich, spicy distillery character is still very much in evidence. A very small drop of water is recommended to open up the flavours.
Complex, oaky, apples and pears, and a tempting dark toffee sweetness.
Dry and assertive, develops quickly to reveal a rich spiciness, combined with a hint of oak and sherried fruit.
Amazingly smooth for the strength; wonderfully warming and with a lingering smokiness, yet very rounded.
