Peter Mulryan

A stunning assault of Demerera sugar, roasted nuts and fruity yoghurt.
Very sweet and juicy, then dried apricots before moving on to rich fruitcake.
A tart, dark marmalade tingle.
This whiskey has changed quite a bit in the last few years. It's now less subtle, more forthright, but no less delicious.

Dave Broom

Full, rich and woody. Light spiciness, varnish, toffee, orange peel. Good mature notes: overripe fruit, spruce, spent firework. Old...too old?
Wood has strong influence. Some sweet dried fruits, amontillado-like, roasted almond. A touch winey, then the wood firms a little.
Biscuity, dusty, splintery.
It's balanced but it lacks the vibrancy of the 16 Years Old.
