9 years ageing in ex-Bourbon. Half then finished for 3 years in ex-Mathuselm Oloroso Butts
Tasted: Feb 2018
Aromas of edgy barley and soft vanilla. The sherried dried fruit (fig, raisin and sultana) is subtler than I remember, but then it doesn’t spend half as long in the sherry as it used to, so that’s not a surprise. Lightly peppery and earthy. Still very polished though.

The palate opens with some sweet-ish barley, along with toffee, marzipan and hints of dried fruit and subtle herbal notes. The balance of both American oak and sherry is rather good, and I’ll still say that the 12 year old is my favourite expression. Long, marzipan and barley finish with a subtle treacle and raisin after-taste.

Please note that the branded Glencairn glass is not included with this bottle. It however can be purchased separately for £8.95
