Complex. A remarkable malt that thrills but saddens. Here's another light that's gone out.
30 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Hugely complex. Big, powerful, rich. Heathery smoke, lanolin. Sweet notes from oak, soft caramelised fruits. Also liquorice, light roasted coffee, serrano ham, candle wax and spent wick.
Palate: Fantastically complex, the notes on the nose plus a mouthfilling mix of sweet, smoky and dry.
Finish: Very long, spices, oil, fragrant smoke.
Comment: Complex. A remarkable malt that thrills but saddens. Here's another light that's gone out.
Nose: Hugely aromatic. Very distinctive. Resiny. Balsamic vinegar.
Palate: Spiced olive oil. A sweet mustard, then a hot one. White pepper. Cumin. Stinging, lively, with lots of flavour development.
Finish: Salty. Medicinal. Sudden TCP/Listerine.
Comment: Those startling, appetising aromas and flavours had me cooking in a new kitchen. I must have let the Sabatier slip. Why else the TCP?
