Nose
Fragrant. Lightly smoky. Oaky. Slightly musty.
Palate
Soft for its age. Fresh, fruit. Some sweetness in the middle. Mint creams. Oaky woodiness.
Finish
Kirschwasser, Cherry brandy. Almondy.
Comment
A great age, but it has matured beautifully.

Martine Nouet

87
Nose
Sherry with leather and smoke. Powerful, complex, resiny. Polished old furniture. Dried fruit, cider and cinnamon slowly emerge. Custardy notes.
Palate
Slight apple sourness with burnt wood and dark chocolate. Candied chestnuts.
Finish
Lingering but dry and slightly bitter.
Comment
A rich, luscious, venerable malt although time and sherry have silenced the distillery character. A real piece of history. No water, thanks!
