Lovely dark golden syrup colour contrasts with pleasant labelling in this expression (the bottle matters).
Warm, spicy, vanilla and dark stewed fruits on the nose with a hint of rum Christmas cake on the nose.
On the palate a real richness of flavour, notes of currants, vanilla pods, woody esters and spices.
The finish is long and smooth with those fruity spice notes lingering on the tongue.
My money would put this as being from the Mortlach distillery, but again just a guess. A wonderful single malt scotch that is punching well above its weight. For less than £20 from Aldi I would highly recommend it.
P.S. Christmas has brought some lovely new additions to the cabinet which I shall be reviewing soon. Keep a look out and have a great New Year! Bliadne mhath ur!
