This single cask bottling was filled into a refill hogshead cask in October, 1995, and bottled in February of 2013 by Douglas of Drumlanrig with 150 bottles destined for the U.S.
The nose is light and fruity with notes of pears and peaches, good maltiness, and hints of pine and mint. The taste starts off fruity, but a spicy touch of cinnamon and ginger builds up quickly, then fades slowly as the fruity touches of pears and peaches return, along with a very consistent touch of pine and mint notes from the nose. The finish is medium-length with pears and a soft hint of cinnamon. Very consistent and well-balanced.
