Beautiful liquid that shows great age and balance.
18 Years Old
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Very gentle at first, then creamy banana mash. It starts to sweeten up with vanilla pods and toffee pennies. Eventually earthy, a little musty and then the spices arrive.
Palate: Soft, rich and very clingy on the palate. Then the oak starts to increase with vanilla and brown sugar before the spices take over. A hint of espresso grinds.
Finish: Pretty long with the oak dominating. Slowly dries with the prunes and sherry soaked raisins.
Comment: Beautiful liquid that shows great age and balance.
Nose: Bursting with aromas of butterscotch, salted caramel popcorn, roasted hazelnuts and lemon washing up liquid. There are juicy undertones of cherries in kirsch syrup and blackcurrant jam on toast.
Palate: Chargrilled mango, freshly salted popcorn and builder’s tea with a swift flash of sugared almonds and peanut butter. Cucumber skin and paracetamol towards the back of the palate.
Finish: Short with a nut butter consistency.
Comment: A lunch box full of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
