Online tasting note for reference:

Colour: dark amber.

Nose: the subtlest and yet the fullest of them all. Amazing crème de menthe over raisins, praline, puréed chestnuts and heather honey. Which, by the way, would make you think of old Highland Park in this very context. Seriously, this could have been some young early-1960s Highland Park matured in proper sherry wood.

Mouth: nah this is armagnac and it is certainly much grapier than any Highland Park, but all this sherry, tobacco (Borkum Riff), nuts and mead do work to perfection. A certain sourness in the aftertaste keeps it, say vibrant and even kind of refreshing, despite a thicker profile overall.

Finish: pretty long, on liquorice, cinnamon, marmalade and heather honey indeed. Great rusticity.
