Nose
Sweet, medicinal, buttery and floral. Damp tweed and ginger. Sootier with time.
Palate
Soft, gently spiced, with summer fruits and digestive biscuits. Mildly medicinal as well.
Finish
Very long and warming, with hazelnuts and drifting peat smoke.
Comment
Another shining example of shrewd cask selection.

Nose
Bandages and mild TCP, but there is an underlying sweetness as well. Buttercups and hints of Parkin cake.
Palate
That Parkin cake note comes through, dark treacle and spices. A little melon and Parma ham. Peat edge too.
Finish
Long and satisfying.
Comment
Almost perfection, should be tasted outdoors.
