Douglas Laing - Director's Cut - Probably Speyside Finest Distillery - Tasting Notes
The nose is filled with Sherry notes of dried fruits, figs and some nutty influences. Sweet dense fruit cake, sweet spices, dessert buffet with a sticky toffee pudding, vanilla, red apples and Christmas cake.
On the palate I could find back the same notes as on the nose giving it a balanced feel. Sweet vanilla and a little bit of dryness of spices and cocoa are also present. Dried apples, figs, creamy, toffee, red apples and molasses.
A medium length to long finish with sweet, spice and full creamy feel. Orchard fruits, chili pepper, lots of sweet notes. Giving it a 7,5 out of 10 for sure, very balanced, full and complex. But found it a bit too dry to my taste. That just made it go down a bit in scoring. But very nice....
