A restrained malt for all its massive complexity and depth.
21 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Absolute class! A cluster of berry-fruits add to the complexity.
Palate: Sexy, voluptuous mouthfeel with the honey taking off early then a more estery fruitiness and a big build up of malt.
Finish: Hints of cocoa underline the age and the bitter/sweet honey oak finish lasts forever.
Comment: A restrained malt for all its massive complexity and depth.
Nose: Sherry. Peaches and cream.
Palate: Sherryish nuttiness and sweetness at first, but the drier distillery character gradually emerges. Lots of flavour development.
Finish: Rounded, spicy (aniseed?) with a lovely peaty warmth.
Comment: After dinner.
