A perfect example of the 'tough guy with a tender heart'
Vintage, Aged 17 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Medicinal. Obvious TCP. Bold but the alcohol is well mastered. Light smoke. Boat tar. Fishing nets. Drying seaweeds.
Palate: Sweet, tender and yet, pungent. Oily feel. Perfect balance of iodine and malt.
Finish: Iodine, tarry warm but not fiery.
Comment: A perfect example of the 'tough guy with a tender heart'
Nose: Tarry with some liquorice, becoming increasingly medicinal alongside pipe smoke, smoked meats and burning yew branches.
Palate: An immediate sackful of soot, but then the layers slowly reveal themselves. A cracker.
Finish: Long smoky, slightly oily.
Comment: An excellent mix of the rich, the sweet and the smoky. Mouthfilling and complex.
