Quite engaging, but just past its best.
1969, 34 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: Fruits, whole and unpeeled. The aromas of a greengrocer's shop. Grapes.
Palate: Soft but rounded. Sliced cooking apple. Hazelnuts.
Finish: Becoming hotter, sharper. Some tannin. A touch of woody dryness.
Comment: Quite engaging, but just past its best.
Nose: Starts with linseed oil/play-doh, then becomes buttery with light marzipan, dried orange peel and some apricot jam. Wood oils, peanut and a tickle of smoke. Pretty.
Palate: Clean and light. Parma violet. Sweet centre with dry oak and a concentrated mid-palate.
Finish: Fades a little quickly.
Comment: A little simple, but again a perfectly pleasant whisky.
