An interesting and invigorating autumn dram which needs water to cut the edges.
11 Years Old 1999 Bordeaux Cask
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Delicate. Malty and nutty. Hazelnut toffee. Dried apples. Medlars. A sylvestry note. Like drying leaves and pine needles in autumn. Crème caramel. Quite enticing.
Palate: Surprisingly sweet at first. Followed by a spicy outburst. Teases the tongue\rbefore releasing sweet fudge flavours.
Finish: Sweet then dry with a nutty aftertaste.
Comment: An interesting and invigorating autumn dram which needs water to cut the edges.
Nose: A little humidor note, leaf mulch and dried fruit. There is a creamy undertow\ras well and some ripe soft fruit.
Palate: Honey sweet to start then the spices explode. Cinnamon, chocolate and raisins. Clotted cream and burnt sugar at the end.
Finish: Lush and sweet.
Comment: Another decent whisky from a distillery showing it holds interesting\rstocks, what next I wonder...
