A confident, handsome whisky.
25 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: An old shop, with fittings in polished oak, leather and brass. A ship's chandlers', perhaps?
Palate: Big. Cakey. Oily. Beeswax.
Finish: Late gingery spiciness with some saltiness.
Comment: A confident, handsome whisky.
Nose: Light and spicy. Toasted pine nuts, citrus fruits, cereal. Stewed orange, jasmine, almond.
Palate: Mulled, spicy warmth. Fragrant and exciting. Tangerine, banana, lemon. Well-balanced with soft, sweet oak.
Finish: Those spices again. Tangerine jelly and cream.
Comment: Seems much younger than it is. Has real charm.
