Taster Dave BroomNose:
Opens very slowly to reveal a mass of aromas: lanolin, smoke, hessian, dried fruit, polished wood floors, oak, liquorice, cake, silky red fruits, cream.Palate:
Hold it in the mouth and there's allspice, sultana cake, crisp malt, bung cloth, turfy smoke which builds in intensity as the whisky opens.Finish:
Long, smoky, but also fruit pastilles.Comment:
This needs time. Right enough at this price, you're hardly going to shark it back.
