This malt was aged in an American oak ex-sherry cask, which yielded a smooth, aromatic, and outstanding dram! The nose has notes of honey, black pepper, cloves, a touch of campfire smoke and a hint of maple, along with a subtle note of pears. The taste is spicy and intense with long-lasting peppery notes that fade to reveal hints of licorice, honey, figs, and a touch of thyme. The finish is extremely long and smooth with a subtle pepperiness and hints of licorice.
