Very long, thin legs.
The nose is rich in toffee and raisons and baked fruits, maybe apples and pears straight out the oven, but just a hint of the brown sugar or nutmeg one might expect in this aroma. And just a touch of that rubbery old Islay malt and medicinal character.
The palate is smooth and slightly creamy, not quite oily, with the baked fruit sugars, sherry, mashed nuts – walnuts and brazil nuts – with sweet prunes and a vague malty woodiness also in evidence.
The finish is long and warm, with the fruits and sherry slowly diminishing in the sweet burn of alcohol. Mmm-Mmm Good!
