Nose
Prickly at start. But slowly opening on fruit and oak. Burnt wood. Dried fruit. Obvious sherry influence. Cocoa bean. Damson plums.Sandalwood.
Palate
Dry and crisp. Oak speaks up. The alcohol bite leaves a tangy feel on the tongue. Quite astringent. The fruit is overwhelmed by tannins.
Finish
Dry,burning. The spices linger,keeping the tastebuds numb.
Comment
The nose was promising but the palate is too woody for me. And the alcohol is not mastered.

Nose
Christmas in a glass. Dried fruits, Christmas cake,spiced apple, cinnamon,the whole seasonal she bang.
Palate
Stewed apples,mince pies,orange peel, rich and wonderful. Warm this up and who needs mulled wine?
Finish
Marmaladey,spicy and fruity. A lovely balanced mix.
Comment
Everything a malt from this distillery at this age should be. No distillery does whisky this old this well.
