    Color
    Pale amber
    Nose
    Vanilla oak
    Body
    Light on the tongue, then thickens.
    Palate
    An elegant level of peat (not too soft, not too strong)
    Finish
    A slight afterburn.

    Can be sipped straight. I think this could be my new favorite over Laphroaig.

    Review by Eye-lah Guy

    8850/99
    Color
    Copper amber in the glass with sheer legs
    Nose
    Cinnamon and vanilla nose with "VT Fancy maple syrup," pears, distinct malt, and a hint of the most delicate sherry.
    Body
    Medium
    Palate
    A sock to the palate with a myriad of sensations: brassy molasses, woody tannins, sherry most subtle, sour apple, and fiery oak, and inherent undertones of copper tartness, expertly balanced.
    Finish
    The finish crashes the party, but is long and extremely warm, with oak char and razor sharp grain, simmering down to the amiable aroma of sweet rum pipe tobacco on a warm summer night.

    This is a sherry casker done with the subtlety most of it's peers have not approached. In avoidance of featuring the overdone sherry cask aura and relegating it to supplanting the malt, comes exquisite genius of simplicity; this is a complex character requiring multiple tastings and rewritings. Do those copper pot stills (“the largest on Speyside!”) account for the brassiness? Outstanding.

    Review by Ben L.

    7850/99
    Color
    A deep amber
    Nose
    Cristmas medicine to restore the memories.
    Body
    Warms the mouth a bit, not too tingly.
    Palate
    Sweet deep down, a candy cane liqueur.
    Finish
    It makes your throat happy for a while before bidding you adieu.

    A warming dram for a snowy day and a good companion the year through. Perhaps the good life isn't so far away after all.
