Herbal coffee and dark chocolate dominate the bouquet, with hints of barley and subtle dried fruit. A little winey dried fruit and earth comes to the fore along with vanilla and rose petal notes. Given time this becomes quite sweet, with a slight soapiness developing. The palate is soft with flavours of toffee-coated dried fruit. Relatively straightforward, but showing some mature elements and a pleasant intensity. The finish is long and juicy with lashings of lingering dried fruit, liquorice and dark chocolate; an attractive whisky with some mature spirit at work.
