Date of tasting: 31/10 2007
Apperance: A very deep copper with henna notes Nose: Fruity and winey notes. Plums and raisins, some rubber. The straight nose has astonishingly little prickle for being at 60% abv. Dryish wood and some fragrant fabric softener notes. Reduced to nosing strength it lends more fresh fruit, citric notes and just a hint of lavendar. Peppery and leafy with some toffee. Curiously cooling. While the straight nose was deeply sherried the reduced nose is very fresh, but over time it seems to want to return to it's sherried beginnings. Body: Quite heavy and oily. Palate: Lots of dried fruits carries over. Deep, sherried notes on an oily background. The reduced dram doesn't feel that astonishing but has lots of pleasant Speyside characteristics. It's ! a rich and sweet fruitcake with a pretty long finish which reveals some honey first, then some drying wood and ends with a prickling reminder of sherry. Luxurious.
