Waitrose 10 Year old Speyside

Scotch - Speyside Single Malt Whisky 12 Years and Under 2016

A complex whisky with notes of fruitcake, Christmas spice, orange, and marzipan, all of which amalgamate into aromas of buttered malt loaf. After a while, more bitter tea emerges. To taste, there are musky sherry notes, apple, oats and some light wood smoke with charcoal and black liquorice joining later. The finish is dry and develops neatly from a green stalkiness to light oak, honey, and dried apple.
