Appleton Estate
Extra 12 year old 43%

ABV: 43
Bottle size: 70
In stock

Tasted: May 2014
A dense, moist fruitcakey nose of molasses, toasted toffee and light roasted coffee beans. A lovely, refreshing citrus freshens allowing hints of orange, dried banana, coconut, oily sultana notes and vanilla oak to emerge. Bold and full but a little lighter than the 8 year old with plenty of warming spice and herbal accented spice. With time that herbalness becomes a little agricole-esque. A beautifully vibrant nose.

The palate is full and elegant with a fresh, citrus opening. Again a little lighter than the 8 year old but the molasses, toffee, treacle and dark spices duly arrive. Some lovely, mature dried fruit comes through on the middle and the citrus continues to fend off the molasses richness. Eventually the citrus gives way to allow the molasses, brown sugar and cocoa notes to come through on the finish along with the dried fruit and a light smokiness.
