Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: More concentrated. Citrus peels, overripe fruit, polished oak. Intense and exotic: rose petals, Turkish Delight, parma violet, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Palate: Tobacco notes, chocolate and coconut. Coffee, heather. A good back-palate whisky.
Finish: White pepper, crystalline ginger. Elegant.
Comment: Maturity, refined rather than OTT. Great to see distillery character retained at this age.
9.0
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Vanilla and caramel, but undercut by something smoky and slightly bitter. A raked over bonfire of autumn leaves.
Palate: Cloves, marmalade and smoky malt are in here, but so is old wood. Spices and honey, brittle toffee.
Finish: The cask is just about held in check by the integrity of The Macallan. A creamy character lingers.
Comment: No further, I think.
