Nose
Impressive! Immensely fruity: peach, pear, mango, pineapple, sprinkled with sugar. Subtly oaked, with late earthy and citric notes which balances.
Palate
Less exuberant, but still lovely. Malt and sweet biscuits with barley and honey. Hints of mature oak, banana and apricot.
Finish
Long and fresh as the citrus kicks in with a touch of sweet but earthy peat.
Comment
Normally I would complain about the palate not displaying the exuberance of the nose, but I can't moan at all about the depth and quality!

Nose
There is some good age on this, or at least a well-matured whisky. Cricket ball leather, and some lanolin too. Soft and inviting.
Palate
Notes of hazelnut and cream. Linseed oil and vanilla as well. That lanolin/wool note is there, in a lovely way, like a welcoming warm blanket. Some smoked brisket notes.
Finish
Soft sugar, old leather and notes of oak and light smoke.
Comment
This is a stunning dram, which hits each ball in an over for six and is approaching a century.
