Nose
Mature, gritty sherrywood, moist, dried prune, raisin and malt with hints of fish oils, salt and a sliver of creamy vanilla oak. Cedar, cigar smoke, coffee, tar and incense.
Palate
Robust, typical Campbeltown gritty Oloroso character. Prune, raisin, walnut, coffee with peat, fish and violets. Deep and mature with sweeter spice coated orange.
Finish
Utterly majestic with lingering Armagnac-esque dried fruit, violets and chocolaty tannins.
Comment
This can only come from one distillery in Scotland. Unique and stunning!

Nose
Red cherries, proper oak-age (few tannins, big flavour), suede jackets, warm sand and lightly charred pine on a dying fire. This is very well matured.
Palate
The palate carries all the elements of the nose really well, with just a hint of cigar and some freshly chopped mint and basil to add to the mix.
Finish
More vintage oak vanilla, cigar tobacco and classic cream soda.
Comment
Brilliant with one weakness… the weakness; I wish it was a slightly higher ABV.
