Replacing the tall round bottle, this 12yo was released in 2002 once the distillery changed ownership from John Dewar & Sons to Diageo. Matured (at least partially) in ex-sherry casks. Bottled at 43%.
Nose: Soft, sweet maltiness with a spicy, peat-soaked dryness.
Palate: Rich and rounded with sherry notes decipherable.
Finish: Lingering with sherry spice and drying ginger.
