Rich antique gold appearance. Oily, waxy and nutty balanced by ripe orchard fruits aromas. Notes of almond fruit cake on denser Christmas pudding, with cereal and orange behind. Body is medium to rich. Good viscosity. The comforting chewiness of rich fruit-bread, hints of orange zest and clove, growing drier, still minty, with crisp green apple on the palate. The finish in a word, long. Quite syrupy at first, then drying, with elegant coating tannins rich in dark chocolate character.

This new offering is made with whiskies "married in our smallest casks" to entice more fruitiness. The end result mixes vanilla and fresh apple aromas, though neither carries forward to the palate. Instead, flavors of resin and menthol dominate, though there's a pleasing peachy note on the dry, relatively hot finish. Adding water coaxes out a mellow vanilla note.
