Nose
Reeks of age. Elegant, malty, herbal and sweet with violet tinged incense and Armagnac dried prune, grape, fig and walnuts. Creamy vanilla balances with milk chocolate and green tea.
Palate
Complex mature malt, sherry and subtly sweet dates, plum and prune. Old Armagnac demeanour but the citrus adds a balancing freshness with hints of creamy vanilla.
Finish
Long, majestic and spiced (both sweet and dry) with vanilla and cigar/tea leaves.
Comment
Balanced and mature. Just how a sherry cask should be.

Nose
In tasting flights of whisky, you wait for a nose like this: sweet strawberry yet with a hint of balsamic vinegar and cracked black pepper to balance it out.
Palate
Quite a wonderful palate of really well-aged malt whisky, hints of freshly chopped mint play with big oak tones and that strawberry flavour once again.
Finish
Jammy Dodger biscuits served with a Blood Sand made with vintage Scotch.
Comment
Pretty much how mainland Scotch whisky should taste (holds breath for price).
