Nose
Luscious Tiramisu made with chocolate sponge soaked in espresso, dark cherries soaked in Madeira. Kumquat and crystalised ginger.
Palate
Heavily polished ancestral furniture with the richness of PX sherry. Bitter dark chocolate and warm pigskin gloves. Dried mango, Ras el Hanout and paprika.
Finish
Cocoons the tongue with velvet.
Comment
It feels old but not fragile.

Nose
Wintery and bold notes aplenty. Toasted nuts, figs, spicy red fruit, possibly a glass or two of vintage port too. Postprandial indeed.
Palate
Mouthcoating, dry, but fruity, spicy and rich. A monster of a palate, with a blast of orange zest for good measure. The oak has given this perfect ageing and complexity.
Finish
Lengthy and spicy. The richness of the nose is amplified here and seems to last for ages.
Comment
I'm all for drinking light and refreshing whiskies as a highball or with ice; but adulterate this gem and I'll come looking for you. Magnificent.
