Broader than most. Great blending of old, mature whiskies.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Chewy with some complexity: stewed fruits (apricot), barley sugar, sealing wax, sultana, coconut, light sweet spices and crystallised fruit.
Palate: Perfumed start, dried apple and a hint of smoke. Bitter chocolate. Layered, honeyed.
Finish: Oaky, mature.
Comment: Broader than most. Great blending of old, mature whiskies.
Nose: Heady. Artificially flavoured sweets. Fresh paint. Then much better. Drying hay. Freshly squeezed orange. Marzipan. Milk chocolate bar.
Palate: Creamy, chewy. Fresh oak. Pear and almond pie. Eau-de-vie cherries.
Finish: Hot, dry, slightly bitter.
Comment: Quite ordinary. Surprisingly firey for the strength. Lacks delicacy.
