A little sour for me.
Signature Malt 1989, 16 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fudge, wet grass, lemon, peach and white breadcrumbs. There was a grubbiness to this nose that didn't appeal.
Palate: Some astringent citrus, jelly babies and a little yeasty, breadiness.
Finish: Sourness with a little spice.
Comment: A little sour for me.
Nose: Stewed apple, estery coffee grounds, planed wood. Hints of complexity.
Palate: Sweet and highly concentrated. A battle between fruit and oak. Lacks personality. Dislikes water.
Finish: Hot and feisty.
Comment: It's hard to get excited about.
