"This has a significant proportion of sherry wood and it marks a real step up from its younger stablemates. It boasts a stylish nose of old leathery cigar boxes, vanilla, and orange marmalade. Syrupy on the palate, with oranges, sweet sherry, honey, and figs. Spicy oak, caramel, citrus fruits, and aniseed in the lengthy finish." Rated 92pts, Whisky Advocate

The mature, deep, spicy one: a deeper Sherry influence adds more spiciness and a liquorice tang. Greater age adds body and develops the distinctive fruitiness to a rich raisin character.

COLOR
Auburn gold

NOSE
Rich and complex notes of toffee and butterscotch combine with ripe peach and bitter orange

PALATE
Perfect structure. Initial notes of soft apricot and cream are offset by developing flavors of blackcurrant jam and sweet oak with a touch of honey

FINISH
Very long and balanced, progresses from crème brûlée to a gentle oak flourish
