An amazingly sexy nose, but disappoints slightly on the palate.
Aged 12 Years
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Exotic and plump, slightly yeasty with sultana and spices (Peshwari Naan??) then coconut cream, Madeira cake, crème brûlée and sugar candy.
Palate: Oakier and spicier than the nose suggests. The soft red fruit/honey hidden slightly. Dry.
Finish: A little woody.
Comment: An amazingly sexy nose, but disappoints slightly on the palate.
Nose: Potpourri. Leafy, cedary, oaky.
Palate: Creamy, fudgy, flavours. Berry fruits emerging, then fruity, plum-skin acidity.
Finish: Cooked plums. Fruit pies. Smoky.
Comment: Plenty of dimension. The acidity makes it especially appetising and drinkable, and potentially an accompaniment to food. Bring on the barbecue.
