Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky,rich. Walnut stain with elements of dark chocolate.
Palate: A bit sharp at start then releasing sweet cooked fruit notes. Mouth coating. More chocolate,liquorice root.
Finish: Dry,spicy,lingering for ages. Nutty aftertaste. Walnut.
Comment: A rich,complex whisky who has managed to tame oak through time. Superb aromatic display. Impressive.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet and savoury. Bitter chocolate mixed with nuts and raisin. Light coffee notes. Slightly burnt. Has weight and style. Rewarding and complex.
Palate: Big and resinous. Good balance struck between sweetness and structure. Its apparentage is exposed by water which shatters it,so don't dilute!
Finish: Long and drying.
Comment: A big whisky.
