The panel noted first the enticing ruby hue of the whisky and were then both surprised and delighted to find a complex and delicate aroma brimming with notes of paprika, fragrant pilau rice, cinnamon, sultanas in fruity, Moroccan style couscous and notes of fresh linen and ripe kumquats. With water we also noted many dried fruits, strawberry liqueur, fruit pastilles, hessian, pear tart tatin, apricot jam and lemon oil. The palate displayed a beautifully syrupy texture with notes of maple, strawberry jam, spicy wood char, cannabis resin and smoked thyme. With water adding seville orange marmalade, aged cognac, buttermints and toasted Brazil nuts. Matured for 19 years in a refill hogshead before transfer to a 2nd fill charred red wine barrique.
