Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Into cooked/caramelised fruits, coffee grounds, hard toffee, aromatic. Rich and velvety. Oaky but with layers of sweetness underneath.
Palate: Powerful. Rich with cocoa solids, liquorice, chestnut (honey) and firm oak. Drier than the nose.
Finish: Long. Caramelised oak.
Comment: Bigger and therefore better balanced than the 20 Years Old. Still grippy though.
