Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Sweet and fresh. Lots of candied peel and the oak shows through withvanilla and creamy notes.
Palate: Very soft and mellow. The oak grips gently and is surrounded by a lemonzest and sweetness.
Finish: Gentle with spices.
Comment: Still a lot of life in this yet. A great addition to the 12 and 30 Years Old.
8.5
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Perfumy. Pot-pourri, vetiver. Orange peel. Lemon curd. Gets creamier
Palate: Gently flowing. An aerial mouthfeel. Perfect integration of oak mingling into a luscious creamy pudding-like array of flavours. Honey and lemon. Fresh almonds.
Finish: Light, smooth, with just a hint of dry spice.
Comment: A delicate yet full of character old whisky. Like walking in a flower gardenat springtime.
