An enticing note and a more 'square'
1980, 12 Years Old
Nose: Grassy, perfumy. Floral. Sweet meadow flowers, orange blossom. Exquisite. Pomegranate juice. Light and luscious.
Palate: Dry, crisp. But clean. Not as sweet as the nose leads you to expect. Spices dance on the tongue. Drying out into dust.
Finish: Fizzy, spicy. With a sweeter aftertaste. Orange drop.
Comment: An enticing note and a more 'square'
Nose: Sort of orange juice. Barley sweets. That sweet slightly bitter edge to it. Floral and honey notes as well. Gentle and complex.
Palate: Hits you with a whack of spices and grips the tongue. There is a crispness to it and slightly dusty.
Finish: Sweet with barley sugar.
Comment: Takes you one way and then hits you from the other. Great fun and complex.
