Nose
Highly concentrated nose:black truffle,soy sauce and tamarind, roasted tea. Orange peel. Exotic and leathery with massive levels of whisky rancio mixed with a rooty vetiver note.
Palate
Polished,smoky. Prunes and earth. It could be an ancient Armagnac. Obvious age and big tannic grip but there's a hint of berry fruits.
Finish
Lengthy and gripping.
Comment
Like drinking an ancient forest and not to everyone's taste (or pocket) but it has character and power.

Nose
Earthy. Moss. Oak. Church bench. Exotic wood. Beeswax. Burnt wood. Molasses. Complex and deep. Lots of sherry wood.
Palate
Sweet and bitter. Complex. Exotic fruit. Guava and passion fruit. But oak tends to play the boss.
Finish
A sweet aftertaste. Sultanas.
Comment
An old whisky which has stayed too long in wood. It was certainly beaming a good 10 years ago.
