Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature. A light fingal note: cep, roasted meat, dry oak. Old cupboards, antique shops.
Palate: Delivers on the palate. Old and quite rich: leather, nut bowl, black fruits, oaky and firm, a hint of smoke. Just enough sweetness to carry.
Finish: Woodland walk in autumn.
Comment: The balance tips things to the oaky side. Good on the palate, but only for lovers of old whisky.
