Matured in first fill recharred American and European oak casks, creates a spicy, rich, flavoursome dram complex with a mix of young vanilla and mature oak. A friendly and warming special strength. A long deeply affecting finish.
A rich nose, with meaty notes in the foreground (roasting tin, over-cooked beef, char), with fruits behind (peach, blood orange, red apple). At full strength the taste is sweet and fruity, with light char in the finish. A little water dries out the aroma and introduces caramelised apples with cinnamon, with light orange zest or oil. Smooth and spicy; sweet and soft to taste.
