This 12-year-old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is unconventionally made using three facets of sherry cask maturation: full sherry cask maturation, combined with Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso Sherry Cask finishing, for unexpected layers of fruit sweetness and toasted oak spice.
Nose: Sherry cask maturation at its most fruity and luscious. Baked fruit salad with fig, pear, apricot and glacé cherry in mandarin syrup. Honey glazed flan with crème-caramel and toasted vanilla pod add to the multi-layered sweetness.
Palate: A rich fruit cocktail of honeyed fig, baked pineapple and sultana fuse with chocolate fondant and muscovado sugar, lifted by mandarin cream, ground nutmeg and vanilla.
Finish: Savour nectarine, candied grape and star anise, lingering into the dessert-like sherried finish.
