My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Burnt sugar, vanilla, marzipan, ginger and nutmeg, hints of wood polish.
Palate: Caramel, vanilla, tinned fruit, hints of ginger and nutmeg.
Finish: Short and fruity, slightly sweet.
Overall: A medium aged single grain with some rather nice flavours, but the mouthfeel is a bit thin and the finish is quite short.
Rating: 76/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
