  • Color & Consistency: Light Caramel to Amber
  • Nose: Old woman's house, musty with slight hints of petrified candy and stewed fruit
    • Taste: Buttery with a fruity citrus and relatively smooth
  • Finish: Cinnamon, allspice & leaves a somewhat oily finish as it lingers on the tongue
  • Conclusion: It's generally a little fruity(due to the sherry casks) and light on the palate. Tastes young for a 12 year scotch. Good overall whisky as it has a well rounded flavor profile.
