Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery: Rounded waves of orange blossom and a citrus twist flow over buttery, golden sultanas, sundried raisins and ripe yellow plums, all dusted with a touch of vanilla.

The WSD: Light sherry notes mixed with citrus and a slight note of liquorice with a hint of rum (V)

Taste
Distillery: Crisp, vibrant oak spices warm soaked sultanas, apricot jam and gingerbread; all rounded by delicate hints of butterscotch, cocoa and toasted almonds.

The WSD: Certainly wakes you up plenty of liquorice and aniseed sets your tongue on fire (V).

Finish
Distillery: Classic sherry overtones with a contrasting crisp dimension demonstrates the complexity of the traditional Highland character.

The WSD: The finish smooths out. but still very fiery (V)
