Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Over-aged, sappy and astringent oak redeemed by bourbony sweetness and by an undertone of amazingly fresh barley.
Palate: Excellent, oily maltiness at first. The middle is an oaky mess.
Finish: Dries too harshly. Long, tapering finish saved by late and enjoyable complexity.
Comment: Struggles to find a rhythm. Lowlanders weren't built to last to this age. Nevertheless, it has its delightful moments. Best at full strength and at about 46%.
