10 Year Old Speyside
Drawn from a refill Oloroso sherry butt, this whisky has the vibrant colour of sandalwood with little bead – the latter normally associated with high-strength filling such as this. On the nose is Walls chocolate ice-cream with vanilla sponge cake, milk chocolate digestives and fresh feijoas. The palate gave us salted caramel truffles, Black Forest Gateaux and a slightly meaty finish. The finish is long and leaves the tongue-tingling.
