My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Amarena cherries, blueberry muffins, wood smoke, cardamom, white pepper.
Palate: Medium peat, sweet cherries, caramel, hints of tea, cardamom, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Long, sweet, fruity and smoky.
Overall: The port finish adds a very sweet fruitiness that fortunately does not quite succeed in destroying the Taliskerness of this whisky.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
