What a beauty! Flavours beaming,oak at peace...\rComplexity meets elegancy.
40 Years Old
Islands (Non Islay)
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Rich, intense. Antique shop, old furniture. A deep sweet wave of concentrated honey. Lusciously complex. A hint of moss and heather root. And a distant smoke echo.
Palate: Sweet at first. Sherry floods in like an unhurried tide. A spicy current teases the tongue.
Finish: Everlasting, complex, sensuous.
Comment: What a beauty! Flavours beaming,oak at peace...\rComplexity meets elegancy.
Nose: Mature. Light rancio touches. Highly exotic. Suede and a sexual sweaty muskiness. Hideously sexy.
Palate: Dry start, then becomes oily and tongue coating. The leather comes back alongside notes of bitter almond,raisin and dried peels. In time the smoke emerges. Crisp then it starts sweetening once more.
Comment: A stunningly great whisky. One of the finest I've had for a considerable time.
