Nose
Fresh fruit and some mild acetone notes. Bright and inviting, more scented when reduced.
Palate
Rich, mouth-coating, plums and thick-cut marmalade, with a whiff of smoke.
Finish
Becoming astringent as the old oak comes to the fore.
Comment
This is a very decent example of an independent bottling.

Dave Broom

75
Nose
Light and nutty/malty. Crisp red apple, hints of spice and orange zest. Polished oak, burnt grass, waxed jacket. Seems youthful.
Palate
Light. Soft texture, good balance. Some floral notes. No great concentration. Sulphur.
Finish
Very long with attractive crunchy malt.
Comment
Good balance, but not the weight or maturity you want from such an old malt.
