Nose
Tropical pineapple, melon, apricot, mango and gorgeous, dusty, mature, American oak. Hints of white chocolate, barley, lime, pear, malt and a salty minerality.
Palate
More minerally with acacia honey, crunchy honeycomb, barley and tropical fruit. The citrus and alcohol keeps the sweetness in check but the oak powers through with praline and spice.
Finish
Long and crisp with honey coated white fruits, oak, praline and drying spice.
Comment
Not enough space to describe the brilliance of this whisky!

Nose
That dusty old smell of old whisky which gives sandalwood, cherry stones and rich vanilla mixed with soft leather, tobacco smoke and sawdust. Simple but brilliant.
Palate
Again, unmistakably old style whisky. Dusty, sandalwood, it's like walking into a men's outfitters on Jermyn Street who also make their own eau de toilette for only the wealthiest of men.
Finish
Delicate oak gives this a balance rarely found.
Comment
Classic style whisky. If you want to know why, buy and try.
