This single malt was matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks, and the nose is aromatic and creamy with notes of cooked plums and peaches, a hint of toasted oak, red apples, pine sap, and cedar. The nose is spicy, peppery, tart, and fruity with candied orange peel, Christmas cake, red apples, toffee, and roasted chestnuts. The finish starts off dry and smooth with softly fading spices, then turns creamy as it fades away. Excellent! (October, 2014)
