Product Description

Region: Highland

Strength: 61.9%

Volume: 700ml

SMWS Tasting notes: We noticed at first the bright amber colour which was followed by a vibrant Amontillado Sherry-like aroma of toasted hazelnuts, almonds, cinnamon and ginger but with an additional pinch of paprika powder. Big, powerful on the palate neat, it literally took our breath away and we needed a few seconds to regain control of mind and body - there was not so much in terms of actual flavours than an overall sensation. Water added notes of spiced orange pickle and Sherry vinegar, whilst to taste now orange marmalade on rye bread accompanied by a spiced 'Calvados Delicious Sour' cocktail. This was a most unusual experience and certainly not for the fainthearted.

Cask: Refill Oloroso butt
