Nose: First impression when nosing this dram is like walking into a damp dunnage warehouse - fresh, spicy carrying an old oak saturated with whisky character plus an attractive citrus style.
Palate: The richly spiced quality immediately coats your palate with caramelised peaches and cinnamon running to more (now dry) oak.
Finish: The finish is long and remains oaky and spicy with a pleasantly sweet creamy toffee character culminating in soft chewy leather, tobacco and cedar wood.
