[58.8%・10 Years Old・Bottled in 2000・Original Bottling・Limited Release]
The usual suspects of raisins and leather are heavily featured, there is a wee savoury note to it that comes with a light brush of floral honey. The wood is quite prominent on the back end with hints of vanilla and cereal.
Palate & Finish:
The high ABV allows the sweetness of raisins and toffee treats to blossom Toast brushed with a fruit-peels-infused citrus marmalade, using the malt to enhance the sweetness as the delivery grows nuttier.
Medium finish with the raisins introducing a fine tea bitterness.
Even at an ABV this high, the Cask Strength still retains this appealing nature, it’s not a magical Mac but it will put most people in rather good mood.
