This is a really wonderful whisky which wears its age very well indeed.
40 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: A really great balance of oak, earth, dubbin, leather cricket balls and some toasted pine nuts. These elderly notes really work well to provide a rich and welcoming nose.
Palate: An exceptional palate of long-aged whisky which has taken lovely leather notes from the cask, mixed with a hint of spice.\n
Finish: Wonderful soft oak notes, leather armchairs and fresh woollen blankets.\n
Comment: This is a really wonderful whisky which wears its age very well indeed.
Nose: Old sherry butts! Woody, but silky. Intense, mature and dusty with dried orange, apricot and grape. Hickory, pecan, vanilla, chocolate, wood smoke.
Palate: Woody with hickory, cinnamon, ginger, soy sauce and tannins. The rich sherried fruit, liquorice, chocolate and treacle balance. Provençal herbs and heather. \n
Finish: Long, a little austere as the grain kicks in and mingles with the tannins. Superb intensity and pure espresso finish. \n
Comment: Impressive, high malt content with a few years on the clock.
