The Whisky Maker's Cut expression from Glenrothes' Soleo Collection is completely matured in first-fill sherry seasoned casks, resulting in punchy notes of orange, cinnamon and dried fruit. .
Fairly aromatic in the modern style of sherry seasoned casks. Red berries, baked banana, hints of sawdust and vanilla. Some candied orange peel and raisins. Light leathery notes as well.
Raisins and oranges. Plenty of toasted wood spices too: pepper, ginger, nutmeg, slightly overpowering perhaps including a slightly bitter edge.
Medium, warming spices but also cocoa and more fruity notes now.
Roasted nuts and hints of gingerbread. Lacks a bit of fruit here.
