APPEARANCE - Chestnut brown.
BODY - Full bodied, clean yet rich.
NOSE - Extremely sharp and well-focussed; no lingering, rambling smoke but instead a wonderful sultana sweetness.

FINISH - Deep cocoa notes, magnificent vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Very engaging; great sweet-dry balance, led by sweetness.
