Nose
Hazelnuts. The skin of the nut. Papery. Toasty.
Palate
Smooth as polished oak. Treacle-toffee. Walnuts.
Finish
Sappy. Slightly sour.
Comment
Enough character and complexity to withstand the heavy oakiness, but beginning to show its age.

Dave Broom

65
Nose
Treacle and molasses, almost fungal. Nut bowl, leather and bitter chocolate, even cold tea.
Palate
Thick to start then increasingly bitter and tannic.
Finish
Dry and bitter.
Comment
A lot of wood...a lot of sherry wood but not a lot of Glen Grant.
