An old malty number just about holding its own, but it hasn't gained hugely in terms of complexity.
Aged 30 Years, Limited Edition
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Dry, with some raisin, toasted tea cake, wholemeal flour. A slight lactic touch goes with the addition of water, while the nuts turn into Ovaltine.
Palate: Pretty firm, though given a sugared almond sweetness. Soft-centred.
Finish: Clean and nutty.
Comment: An old malty number just about holding its own, but it hasn't gained hugely in terms of complexity.
Nose: Tasty warm flapjacks, and orange muffins. Sweet orange blossom and good milk chocolate.
Palate: Orange, a green oakiness and lots of dryness.
Finish: Sulphurous, like roast pork crackling.
Comment: A very dry palate, but a pleasant drop nonetheless.
