Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky displays a deep amber hue with glints of gold, reflecting its luxurious heritage.
An intricate symphony of scents greets the nose. Waves of rich fruits like dried figs and apricots marry with undertones of toasted almonds, sweet floral notes of rose, and a hint of maritime brine.
Complex and elegantly structured, the palate reveals layers of honeyed raisins, autumn fruits, and a perfect blend of spices including cinnamon and clove. Notes of dark chocolate and dried citrus peel create a harmonious balance. The texture is luxuriously smooth, an attribute of high-quality aged whiskies in the blend.
The finish is incredibly long and warming, leaving a lasting impression of woody oak and smoky embers, complemented by a slight bitterness that's beautifully offset by lingering sweet tones.
Creamy and sumptuous, the whisky offers a rich mouthfeel that lingers, allowing for a slow and contemplative sipping experience.
