Nose
Sweet and savoury. Bitter chocolate mixed with nuts and raisin. Light coffee notes. Slightly burnt. Has weight and style. Rewarding and complex.
Palate
Big and resinous. Good balance struck between sweetness and structure. Its apparentage is exposed by water which shatters it,so don't dilute!
Finish
Long and drying.
Comment
A big whisky.

Nose
Oaky,rich. Walnut stain with elements of dark chocolate.
Palate
A bit sharp at start then releasing sweet cooked fruit notes. Mouth coating. More chocolate,liquorice root.
Finish
Dry,spicy,lingering for ages. Nutty aftertaste. Walnut.
Comment
A rich,complex whisky who has managed to tame oak through time. Superb aromatic display. Impressive.
