18 year old Highland
1 of only 576 bottles from cask no. 1146
Initially quite dry on the nose (Spanish oak influence), this is immediately replaced with a freshly opened jar of apricot jam, quite marmalade-like now with even more jammy notes, apricot, mango and a hint of orange peel. Star anise appears with honey menthol cough sweets and flaked almonds.
On the palate, stocky toffee pudding, more almonds, milk chocolate, and now lime marmalade.
Sweet jams continue in the finish with just a hint of the 18 years spent in oak.
