What they say:

Distilled 1992 and bottled at 21 years old in 2013 at 54.4%

Allt-á-Bhainne 21 Years Old Cadenhead Small Batch

What I say:

Another Cadenhead Small Batch release, this was an offering from the Allt-á-Bhainne distillery normally used for blending so rarely found as a single malt. Bottled at 54.4% ABV, this commands around £55 a bottle

Colour:

Refractive gold

Nose:

Cake mix, fruit cake dough, sweet, cherry lips sweets (cherries), cereal malt and oranges

Taste:

Warming and fruity, maraschino cherries, chocolate malt, slight cinnamon/ginger spiciness, Kirsch (cherry liqueur)

Finish:

Long and slightly drying, more cherries, malt chcocolate, old oak wood with that slightly herbal quality

Overall:

Very enjoyable, went down well with the whole audience, that Kirsch and dark chocolate with sweet cereals was just perfect!
