Madeira finish – 40%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Fresh peaches, dried apricots, mango, vanilla, butterscotch, polished wood, hints of nutmeg.
Palate: Exactly like the nose.
Finish: Very long and very fruity.
Overall: Even the low bottling strength cannot detract from the massive fruitiness of this dram. This at cask strength would be very hard to beat.
Rating: 90/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
