Nose: Remarkably light alcohol vapours from this ten-year-old cask strength (60%abv), sweet sherried fruit, molasses, apples and pears, light coffee and white chocolate with a bit of oak.
Palate: Cloves, lots of cherry, more oak sensations and a rich mouthfeel without excessive heat.
Finish: Spicy with sherry nuttiness, dry and oaky with mild warmth.
Overall: A well rounded, smooth, and easily drinkable cask strength whisky. Water reduces the bottle's warmth and amplifies its spice. Neat is my preference. $79.95 at the LCBO.
