Re: What's your latest bottle opened?
Just opened the bottle having only tasted this once before. Having said that I bought a bottle there and then on the strength of the tasting.
Wow - A cascade of mixed fruit on the nose. Predominently prunes? It smells sweet. More malty with a little water.
Honey sweet and sherrylike but with a magnificent hard, peppery edge and undertones of wood. Complex.
With water the peppery edge has gone but so has the fruity sweetness leaving a rounded, beautiful flavour.
A long rich lingering finish, just slightly oily but going on and on - just lovely.
A very good whisky indeed.
I haven't tried the 15 and many here believe it to be better. It must be a classic.
