This malt is as dark as maple syrup, thanks to the two different sherry casks (Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez) used in its maturation. The nose is a wonderful balance of wood and sweetness, with dark chocolate and citrus fruits dominating. Tasting it reveals the complexity of this dram, with the dark chocolate balanced well with coffee and vanilla creme flavors, as well as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. The finish reminds me of a perfect autumn day — lingering with dried leaves and wood smoke.
