Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Coffee. Shoe polish. Figs,prune and strawberry. Oily and resinous. Deep with an off-dry savoury sweetness. With water balsamic. Big and sherried but has promise.
Palate: Big and very bitter. Burning autumn bonfire. Chestnut,then the shoe polish returns. Water makes it even more grippy.
Nose: Woody. Concentrated. Heady floral note. Hyacinth. Burnt caramel.\rOvercooked plum jam. A sour fruit note.
Palate: Sweet at first then the wood speaks up. Bitter chocolate,ground coffee beans.
Finish: The bitterness lingers and lingers.
Comment: An overaged malt which has the accent of an overaged bourbon ! You have got to have a taste for woody whiskies to like this one.
