Undisclosed Speyside distillery – Refill hogshead 3110 – 57.1%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright copper
Nose: Polished wood, dried apricots, vanilla, treacle, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate: Dried apricots, raisins, toffee, cardamom, nutmeg and rather strong pepper notes.
Finish: Medium long, quite spicy and slightly fruity.
Overall: Wood spices dominate but the fruit is always present. This whisky benefits from some water and needs a little time to open up.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
