Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Pipe smoke, citrus and waxy leather: beautifully sweet despite the big oak. Overall, somewhat bourbony.
Palate: Intense toasted malt-oak intensity before it drifts back off into bourbon-land.
Finish: Slightly bitter honeycomb and waxy-though the demerara sweetness continues.
Comment: Few malts reach this age intact. This has - and with some considerable panache.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peaty, earthy, almost pungent.
Palate: Oily. Seed cake. Banana cake. Spicy.
Finish: Big. Spicy. Lemon grass. Fragrant peat. Long.
Comment: A whisky that starts life with some restraint has certainly developed over the years.
