A Fine Christmas Malt 2018. Image courtesy Speciality Drinks/The Whisky Exchange.This 17-year-old single malt comes from an undisclosed Speyside distillery and was matured in Oloroso Sherry butts. The nose has notes of chocolate covered cherries, raisins, berry cobbler, orange peel, toffee, and a hint of port wine. The taste is luscious and well-rounded with Christmas cake, baking spices, a nice nuttiness, and touches of dates, baking chocolate, and raisins. The finish has lingering spices with a touch of pine needles, chocolate covered cherries, and raisins. Excellent! (November, 2018)
