CATEGORY: Blended Malt.
BOTTLER: Chorlton Whisky.
AGE: 17 Year Old.
CASK TYPE: Sherry Casks.
ABV: 46.5% Vol.
NOSE: Crushed granite, bright red apple, cherry lip salve and strawberry Nesquik. There's a nice little dirty note underneath that, leather and tarte tatin, dried fruit cake. Christmas cake.
BODY: Quite gentle with felt and cardboard, orange segments and fruit toffee.
FINISH: Something extremely Christmassy in here, I actually think it might be the smell when you cut wedges off the base of the new fir tree when you're trying to jam it into the base. It's literally that Christmassy. A long finish, with strident tannins and bracing wood against the fruit. Lots of citrus and orange peel at the end.
