My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Honey, fruit cocktail, vanilla, polished wood, hints of nutmeg and pepper.
Palate: Honey, pears, apples, banana, raisins, vanilla, hints of ginger and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: A very fine fruity dram. Everything is well balanced and rounded, nothing stands out, perhaps it’s even a bit too round.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
