The gentle beast from the east

Highland, Eastern

There was an unhurried, timeless quality about this bouquet of aromas; full of fruit (plums and blood oranges), spice (cinnamon and nutmeg), oak and roasted almonds. On the palate we were wandering in a PX wonderland with notes of caramelised pecans, dark cherries soaked in rum, dark plums, violet and strawberry fruit flavoured loose leaf black tea – this is an absolute lip-smacker! Careful when adding water, the scent of marzipan, caramel orange shortbread and malt extract was followed by a glass of Lambrusco – an off-dry lightly sparkling red wine – an absolute joy from start to finish! After eleven years in a refill ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill PX sherry hogshead.
