Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

The rum cask gives a opulence to the nose not found in the others with a bouquet of golden raisin, brown sugar, pineapple, burnt orange peel, and toasted almond. Rich on the palate, it showcases classic single malt characteristics with an underlying sweet spice and mineral complexity.
