Nose
Salty. Seaweedy. Oily. Passion fruit. Spicy. Mace?
Palate
Light touch of sherry and toasty malt. Spicy. Pepper.
Finish
Firm, dry, appetising.
Comment
Shows that this whisky can handle some age and sherry.

Jim Murray

87
Nose
Some rich, softly honied, gently waxed, leathery Bourbony notes; a good age and a light malt.
Palate
Truly stunning balance achieved by the massive sweet malt and the old oak. Deep Bourbon-style notes offering a coffee fudge depth.
Finish
Some demerara sweetness but is over whelmed by the mounting sweet oak. Never dries.
Comment
Why don't Gordon & MacPhail bottle at cask strength more often? This is fabulous.
