Nose
A little dumb and not as effusive as you would ideally wish from this age. Some dry grasses/raffia, hints of crisp oak, privet clippings.
Palate
Another one which is quite discreet on the tongue - some charred notes from the cask. The spirit is intense, lemon accented with a crisp maltiness.
Finish
Sharp and short.
Comment
A little underwhelming.

Nose
Grassy. Lemon balm, angelica, meadowsweet flowers. Opening on cereals. Oatmeal biscuits. And on vanilla. With a touch of tangerine juice.
Palate
Smooth, thick, caressing. Stewed fruit in vanilla then a spicy outburst and dry at midpalate. Ginger biscuits. Water kills the enjoyment.
Finish
Dry, spicy, lingering.
Comment
Delicate and “whispering” on the nose, buoyant on the palate. A double personality ? Hum, interesting.
