Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich and mysterious and evidently of considerable age. Dried mint, darkchocolate with rich fondant sweetness, but also fig and Assam tea.
Palate: Its age anchors it firmly on the tongue. The Seville orange re-emergesalongside eucalptus and coal smoke.
Finish: Rich, crepuscular.
Comment: Amazingly lively for such an age, and that coal smoke is a signature ofdistillery character still hanging on in there.
9.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Slightly cheesy and butyric. Sour fruit. The first butyric note gets covered bynicer aromas. Cider apple.
Palate: Crisp, dry. The sour note is there, integrated into dry oak. Driedkumquat peel.
Finish: Dry with medjoul dates.
Comment: The unpleasant note at first nose goes away. A rich and deep matured whisky which brings out memories of invigorating walks in the woods on acold frosty morning.
