Nose
Deep, complex, elegant. Oak and fruit are lusciously integrated. Barley sugar, pears poached in vanilla syrup with a hint of lemon, Coconut blancmange. A liquid pudding cart ! Hint of mint tea.
Palate
Smooth and satin-like. Lovely feel. A beautiful outburst of spices and fruit. Honey in the back.
Finish
Lingering, spicy and fizzy.
Comment
What a great dram! Complex and beaming. I like it better neat.

Nose
Massively complex, so much going on. Cooked oranges, baked lemon cheesecake and a little fresh mint. After a while some leather and pencil shavings.
Palate
Full of spices and heather. A touch of honeycomb. Mouth coating with great spices.
Finish
Long and warming.
Comment
Well aged and looked after, a lovely dram indeed.
