Nose
Touches of maturity. Light licks of leather, cinnamon and allspice. A citric touch akin to orange peel. Soft sweet fruits. Balanced.
Palate
Clean and graceful. More of an apple box character emerges alongside some light mintiness. Light but clean and well balanced.
Finish
Medium length. Sweet.
Comment
18 years already? Cooley continues to show its quality.

Nose
Sweet. Delicate. Restrained. Barley water. But not much more. A grainy note. Water brings out oakiness.
Palate
Thick. Syrupy but also watery. Hazelnut fudge. Getting astringent. With water, the sweetness becomes cloying.
Finish
Sweet, oaky, astringent.
Comment
A 18 year old whisky should have a more exciting aromatic profile.
