A little over-sweet in places. Aside from that, just wonderful.
25 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fantastic nose of flambé bananas and Crêpe Suzette. If there isn’t good age on this whisky, then it’s come from a top class cask, sweet oak and warm cinnamon buns.\n
Palate: Neat, this sits wonderfully on the palate with those warm cinnamon buns making you feel so at home and a dry oak that is perfectly balanced. With water it just gets better.\n
Finish: Orange creams. Beautiful and delicate old oak and mandarin tones.\n
Comment: A little over-sweet in places. Aside from that, just wonderful.
Nose: Oxidised fruit and herbs. Oozing maturity, with dusty oak and tropical banana, apricot and pear. A touch of barley and creamier oak. Water brings out some waxy citrus.
Palate: Full and honeyed with barley, toasty oak, mature oxidised fruit and herbal rancio. Water emphasises the citrus. \n
Finish: Gorgeous length with the dusty American oak coming through. Mouth-watering and fruity although it needs diluting to bring out the softness and hints of heather and violets. \n
Comment: A stunning dram! Sensational neat or with water.
