Nose: a very smooth profile, with acacia honey, yellow plums and dried apricots, as well as soft spicy notes. A little vanilla. Scented candles. Fruit cake. Really elegant.

Mouth: similar elegance, now more on oranges (both fresh juice and bitter marmalade) and apple peelings. Golden raisins. Then a slightly dry nuttiness, mellow spices and some toasted oak. Rather silky and thin, but that’s fine.

Finish: long, half fruity, half spicy. Some drying oak now. Balance is key.

This is a nicely aged whisky, with a subtle sherry influence and balanced oak. I like it. Around € 185.

Score: 88/100
