Nose
Slightly turfy smoke at work here. Hazelnut and Walnut Whips. Becomes increasingly malty, Ryvita,dried fruit. Slightly plain and oaky.
Palate
Opens to light smoke. Some oak derived depth. Doesn't like water and lacks oomph.
Finish
Nutty.
Comment
Why bottle a 15 Years Old single cask at 40%?

Nose
Slightly rancid and butyric. Overripe apples. A earthy touch. Wet wood. Varnish. With water,opens on nicer notes. Vanilla fudge.
Palate
Smooth and sweet. Velvety. Nice feel. Cooked fruit. Apples and medlars. Touch of honey.
Finish
Pleasantly smooth,with a fresh liquorice note.
Comment
The nose is not appealing. But the taste is interesting. Water improves the nose but not the palate.
