Alder: 18 år
Color: Darker than expected; a deep amber or burnished copper.
Nose: Sweet, fruity and sherry-like; slightly floral (clover); rich and malty with caramel and toffee.
Palate: Initially astringent, followed by a burst of spice and youthful heat; the mid-palate is caramel and honey with woody, resinous notes; dry toast; a distinct lack of fruit despite the nose… but maybe unripe peach along with whiffs of orange hidden deep
Finish: Mid to long finish, gradual and gentle, lingering.
