Sherry and coffee
Bold and voluptuous
creamy, vanilla and sherry

I’m glad we tasted this; I would never have given this a try as it’s not on my radar for a Speyside. Yet, I think this was perfect in every way for a Speyside. A must buy

Toffee and chocolate
Medium bodied
Sweet and smooth
Notes of caramel
Very drinkable single malt. No doubt a great buy and the Revival should be in collections before it is replaced.
