An independent bottling from Darkness of Auchrisok single malt. This 20-year-old expression has been finished in a specially-coopered Oloroso sherry octave cask, with this cask in particularly having held Moscatel sherry previously, before being bottled at 54.5% abv.
The nose has dried fruits, toffee and chocolate, with a hint of cinnamon spice. More spices develop on the palate, alongside orange peel, Christmas cake, and rum flavours. Baked apples make for a delightful finish, with candied almonds and nutty spices.
