My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Smoked ham, vanilla, black pepper, ginger and a mild fruitiness.
Palate: Mild peat, vanilla, raisins, grapefruit, ginger, hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, smoky and dry.
Overall: A nicely sippable dram with a rather pronounced smokiness. The driness is quite pronounced as well, a bit less would make it even nicer.
Rating: 81/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
