Master Distiller, Nick Savage describes it as “A truly spectacular single malt, delivering a rounded honey and sweet toffee aroma and an intense burst of nutmeg wood spices on the palate... the combination of carefully selected sherry-seasoned oak casks brings out unique refreshing qualities delivering an unforgettable whisky experience”.

Other reviews... Seven types of European and American oak casks were used for maturation. Lively on the nose, with orange, malt, sherry, and sweet oak. Initially, a touch hot on the palate, with sherry and cloves, then toffee and vanilla, red apples, figs, and cocoa. The finish is medium to long, with spicy sherry. 48.4% Alc./Vol.
