Aroma: Loads of fruit jams and dried fruit – raspberries, blackberries, raisins, plums, strawberries. Surprisingly mellow, with more notes of milk chocolate, cacao, milo powder. Vanilla as well with slight grassiness and a slight touch of minerality and sea salt. For a fairly young whisky, there’s not hotness here, which is really delightful. Feels alot older and yet somehow vibrant.

Taste: Deep, rich sherry, again with the fruit jams and chocolate, lots of cooked fruit, dried fruit and Christmas cake. Raspberries, blackberries, blackcurrant, raisins. It’s hefty with a great mouthfeel and a buttery oiliness. Then there’s more on old wood, varnish, sandalwood and cedar. If you thought the aromas had depth, wait till you get to the palate, it is rich, deep, rounded and hefty.

Finish: Long, with more dark and milk chocolate covered orchard fruits, creamy, vanilla icing, caramel, marzipan, and again an incense note of something close to sandalwood.
