Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Wintery and bold notes aplenty. Toasted nuts, figs, spicy red fruit, possibly a glass or two of vintage port too. Postprandial indeed.
Palate: Mouthcoating, dry, but fruity, spicy and rich. A monster of a palate, with a blast of orange zest for good measure. The oak has given this perfect ageing and complexity.
Finish: Lengthy and spicy. The richness of the nose is amplified here and seems to last for ages.
Comment: I'm all for drinking light and refreshing whiskies as a highball or with ice; but adulterate this gem and I'll come looking for you. Magnificent.
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: Luscious Tiramisu made with chocolate sponge soaked in espresso, dark cherries soaked in Madeira. Kumquat and crystalised ginger.
Palate: Heavily polished ancestral furniture with the richness of PX sherry. Bitter dark chocolate and warm pigskin gloves. Dried mango, Ras el Hanout and paprika.
Finish: Cocoons the tongue with velvet.
Comment: It feels old but not fragile.
