Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon pouring, one is immediately struck by its radiant amber-gold hue, a color imbued through its years of slumber in Spanish sherry casks.
The olfactory journey commences with an inviting bouquet of dried fruits, particularly raisins and sultanas, underscored by a whisper of oak and slight sherry sweetness. Additional waves of nutmeg and spiced orange peel make themselves known as the whisky breathes.
The taste is a scrupulously balanced blend of classic Speyside notes. Initial flavors of rich dried fruits, Christmas pudding, and a touch of nuttiness transition into more complex layers of oak, spices, and butterscotch. The sherry's influence is evident but judiciously restrained, allowing the malt's inherent complexities to shine.
A long, warming finish lingers, characterized by subtle oaky undertones and a soft spicy flourish. The malted barley reverberates through the finish, making for an impeccably smooth and gratifying experience.
Supple and luxuriously oily, this Scotch graces the palate with a velvet-like texture that enhances its complex array of flavors.
