The low aromatics knock it down but has real palate presence.
1997, 12 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: Pale and wispy with just a hint of butter. Grassy and slightly vegetal. Light oily weight but be careful with the water.
Palate: Buttery and considerably more vibrant than the delicacy of the nose suggests. Concentrated and lightly fruity with lemon and a clinging Loire Chenin type texture.
Finish: Clean with an acidic zinginess.
Comment: The low aromatics knock it down but has real palate presence.
Nose: Fragrant and floral. Fresh fruit, apples and pears, layered with coconut and a little gorse.
Palate: Really fresh at first, those fruits and a little spice, then moves to a little bitter oak.
Comment: A restorative dram, or pre dinner.
