The nose offers a fresh and aromatic experience with a subtle whiff of smoke floating through the air. The taste starts with a light fruit and nut appeal that leads to a spectacular malty sweetness, finishing into a beautifully rich full-bodied, lingering experience.

This beautiful golden spirit’s nose releases honeyed nuts and a slightly sea-induced salty tang. Rich toffee and leathery oak aromas can be sensed upon further inspection. The palate is influenced by mellow sherried nuts and shavings of the finest natural oak wood.

The voyage ends with dry notes that are interspersed with mixed spices fading magnificently into a light salt and sherry finale.

This 25 year old has an amber gold colouring with quite a sherried nose, at first, that introduces a stunning sweet caramel dessert aroma, beautifully entwined with subtle suggestions of oak and polished leather. The indulgence of sweet berries and cream ensures a wonderful mélange of tastes that progress into a roasted nut and malt feast. The finish is soft and dry with a delicate dispersal of sugar and spiced oak flavours lingering on the tongue.
