Very nice nose with orange and apricot marmalade, honey, caramelized sugar and christmas cake; sweet, fruity palate with notes of oak and mint, develops spices, gingerbread - rather nice; oaky finish with dried fruits - slightly metallic, however; best without water (sherry butt no 4295, 341 b.)

Score: 89 p

This is an example of what a "Douglas Laing" bottle looks like.
