Date Tasted:

Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of toasted spice cake, iodine, smoked vanilla bean, digestive biscuit, raisins, honeycomb, toasted almond, lardons, and hints of black olive with a round, vibrant, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, long finish with nuances of roasted hazelnut, dark chocolate, buttered black bread, and caramel. A robust, toasty Single Malt that sweeps across the palate with a chewy saunter.
