My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Honey, stewed apples, nuts, vanilla, polished wood, liquorice, hints of nutmeg.
Palate: Very much like the nose with an added pinch of pepper and some light fudge notes.
Finish: Rather long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: Quite an enjoyable dram, a bit on the spicy side. The age does not really show.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
