Appetising, Very enjoyable.
18 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: More rye character.
Palate: Bigger, drier, spicier. Still very well rounded.
Finish: Nutty dryness. Warming. Long.
Comment: Appetising, Very enjoyable.
Nose: Aromatic, assertive and spicy, it smacks you in the nose with its mix of Christmas spice (ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg), bitter orange, but behind is mellow chewy toffee. Delicious!
Palate: A big mouthful. Gentle and chewy, mixing vanilla, chocolate pepper and spice. Great exchange between spice and mellowness.
Finish: Chocolate then dry and tingling.
Comment: Gentle but big and feisty. Neil Young.
