Stats – 40% alcohol, Speyside, 2010 bottling
Price – $120
Color – Reddish amber
Nose – Sweet and yeasty, and fruit, maybe like bananas foster
Palate – Very smooth, not too spicy and the fruit tastes like dark ripe plums. Rich vanilla shines without being sweet. The half-way point has lots of floral heather balanced with golden raisins and honey at the finish. A nutty richness rounds this out like a nice spice cake or fruitcake. Some dry oak at the finish as well, no surprise from the age of this one. Great complex and unique character here.
