While this doesn't set the house on fire,it's eminently drinkable.
1989, 20 Years Old, Fruit and Nut Fudge
Nose: A little flat initially,then there's linoleum, Elastoplast,lime,peach, tablet, lily.With water,sweet and bready.
Palate: Clean,macaroon,white chocolate, light oak,a drying quality akin to wet plaster. With water much more buttery and fudge like.
Comment: While this doesn't set the house on fire,it's eminently drinkable.
Nose: Prickly. Herbal. Verbena tea. Green tea too. With water,some exotic fruit.\rPineapple. Touch of vetiver.
Palate: The same prickly feel with the alcohol bite. Keeps herbal but does not develop much further. With water, creamier. Mint toffee.
Comment: Shy at first,that dram takes time to reveal an interesting profile. Water\rplays the trick !
