All very precise with a polite procession of flavours. \"No please, you go first. \" \"Why thank you old boy. \"
1973 Vintage Reserve
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Great charm and complexity: apple, malt, flowers, bracken, spice, sawn oak, dunnage. More sweet oak with water. Sophisticated stuff.
Palate: Nutty to start, then bursts into life with chocolate, cut flowers, cinnamon and mandarin.
Finish: Crisp, biscuity.
Comment: All very precise with a polite procession of flavours. \"No please, you go first. \" \"Why thank you old boy. \"
Nose: Flapjack made with treacle. French toast dusted with cinnamon. Ginger. Clean, appetising.
Palate: Dusty. Spicy, then dark chocolate. Developing white chocolate. Vanilla ice-cream. Rum and raisin.
Finish: Crisp. Belgian wafers.
Comment: Luxurious and sweet, but background is gently dry. Deftly balanced and sophisticated, as ever.
