Fantastic length. A truly three-dimensional malt.
Aged 30 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Dry and ash-like: cedar, cigar ash, charred. Softens, showing honeycomb, candied peel, acacia, honey, kumquat, orange pekoe tea, powdered ginger.
Palate: Soft, unctuous feel. Cream, orange peel, that cigar box note again, hint of nut. Fine grained tannin. Great balance with depth and texture.
Finish: Soft and gentle, fades discreetly.
Comment: Fantastic length. A truly three-dimensional malt.
Nose: Initially curiously unyielding, slight perfume, eventually warm horse (in a good way) and cloves.
Palate: Confident. Golden syrup, slight oiliness balancing dry sherry notes, moving into soft peat and a little smoke.
Finish: Long lasting, more delicate, fragrant notes appear as it fades. Slightly winey.
Comment: This expression wears its years well.
