Big cask influence on a pretty light whisky. Interesting, but only for\rsherry nuts.
35 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Dark, deep, full and fungal with balsamic notes, some treacle and a\rdense cocoa nib effect alongside dried fruits, tar, dubbin and plum jam.
Palate: Again balsamic, but sweet with a whiff of mothballs, then fruit paste. Best\rneat. Dying embers and drying blood.
Finish: Black cherry. Bitter.
Comment: Big cask influence on a pretty light whisky. Interesting, but only for\rsherry nuts.

Finish: Long, sweet and juicy.
Comment: Wonderful stuff for a late night fireside chat with friends.
