Very palatable, rich, slightly sherried velvet drapes over the tongue. A long creamy finish. Good. Flavour Map Ref: I3Rich / Delicate [Blind tasting note from RJ during the SFWC: Sweet smoke from a hen (yes), marmalade - zesty. Feinty-aldehides. To taste there's some really lovely burnt rubber. A weak dram that doesn't hold up with water - but great neat.

The first 15 Year Old to enter the top ten best selling single malts in the world.
A single malt Scotch whisky aged in European, American and New American oak - for a careful release of virgin cask flavours.
Mellowed in our first of a kind Solera Vat, and finally married in Portuguese oak tuns gives this whisky great depth and consistency.
