This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Craigellachie. It is bottled at 50% ABV, with no coloring or filtering after being aged for 18 years in a sherry butt.
Sweet cake, honey and light nuttiness. Vanilla bean, toffee, melon, fig and strawberry.
Medium mouth feel. Loaded with marmalade notes. Light nuttiness, faint sulfur. Lots of pipe tobacco, jammy berries and cocoa.
Long, rich with lots of honey, pepper, caramel and a weird marshmallow note.
Interesting but sort of all over the place. That said, I enjoyed it quite a bit.
