A very old whisky which has retained vigour but lost its balance. Oak is prevailing. To savour more like a piece of liquid history.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Woody. Damp oak. Fungal. Like walking in a forest on a wet November\rday. Bitter orange marmalade. Rancio
Palate: Crisp. Oak speaks up. Obviously a very old whisky. Old furniture. Prunes.\rFlowering currant. Passion fruit.
Finish: Lingering,oaky with a sweet prune note
Comment: A very old whisky which has retained vigour but lost its balance. Oak is prevailing. To savour more like a piece of liquid history.
Nose: Takes its time but reveals stewed oranges,wet wood and leaves,a little\rmint and leather.
Palate: There is bitter sweet oak at first. Orange peel,liquorice and some dark fruits.
Finish: The oak dominates and dries on fruits.
Comment: Clearly to be enjoyed like an old document, but what a price point.
