|Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Darker hue as the name suggests, more golden brown than red, from aging in Sherry casks.
Rich nose of dried raisins, dates, caramel, slight brine.
On the palate, very luscious, sweet hint of Christmas pudding, smoky, resiny finish that's long. Spice notes more prevalent than smoke; this is a rich whisky for those who don't want the smoke to be too over-powering.
|Darkest now has an age statement of 15 years old. This new release is an improvement from the original Darkest, both of which are succulently sherried. It is fuller in flavor and more visceral, in both the nose and palate. These differences are subtle, but positive. Notes of lush fruit, raisin, pot-still rum, and Heath bars. Citrus and wood spices emerge, along with burning peat embers that linger on the finish. Nicely done. Score: 90 Source: John Hansell, maltadvocate.com|
