Martine Nouet

Perfumy. Pot-pourri, vetiver. Orange peel. Lemon curd. Gets creamier
Gently flowing. An aerial mouthfeel. Perfect integration of oak mingling into a luscious creamy pudding-like array of flavours. Honey and lemon. Fresh almonds.
Light, smooth, with just a hint of dry spice.
A delicate yet full of character old whisky. Like walking in a flower garden at springtime.

Rob Allanson

Sweet and fresh. Lots of candied peel and the oak shows through with vanilla and creamy notes.
Very soft and mellow. The oak grips gently and is surrounded by a lemon zest and sweetness.
Gentle with spices.
Still a lot of life in this yet. A great addition to the 12 and 30 Years Old.
