The whisky druid tamed the powerful Highlander by finishing it in a first fill PX hogshead. The result is a wonderfully balanced blend of sherry, chocolate, malt and herbs.
Nose: Sweet black tea, malt sweets and crème brûlée, plus plum, cane sugar, nut nougat cream and notes of aged sherry.
Palate: Soft, round and creamy with sherry notes, malt sweets, crème brûlée and milk chocolate, a touch of too long caramelised cane sugar as well as sultanas, spiced plum jam and garden herbs.
Finish: Dry sweetness, some chocolate and fine herbs.
