Yet another interesting bottle from Cadenhead’s! This has been on the shelf a while now but it felt like time to crack it open.
Nose: Waxy with sweet sawdust and wood resin, basil in butter, citrus flowers, icing sugar, and squeezed clementines.
Palate: Oily. Very oily. Fruit and spice – baked apple, elderflower, fresh bilberries leading to cloves and black pepper.
Finish: Long with a warming cinnamon burn and creamy oak.
Big! Fruity and spicy, but without a hint of sherry. Really very moreish and pleasant.
