The bouquet shows aromas of liquorice and raisins, followed by rich scents of dark chocolate and coffee. There are soft notes of smoke, almonds and violets. Malty notes are pronounced and balanced by a fresh aroma of ripe apples. The palate is elegant and soft. Tannins are well balanced and the whisky is perceived mature. The oak contributes delicate esters and astringency followed by an enticing sweetness from wood and honeyed notes on the finish.
