Nose
Masses of stewing rhubarb and fresh gooseberry tart with a slightly burnt base. This mix of freshness and a rich praline note continues with water.
Palate
Lengthy, relaxed with good concentration of sweetness, especially when neat. That needle seen on the nose is there alongside some chocolate ganache.
Finish
Clean and soft.
Comment
Good palate whisky, but keep the water on the side.

Nose
Intense, deep, complex. Fruit cake. Toffee. Oak is superbly integrated. Cedar. Candied orange. Opens on toasted notes.
Palate
Thick, mouth coating. Unwinds rich coffee toffee, crème caramel and toasted nuts. Getting drier and spicier. Oak is elegantly present, framing that rich Dundee cake character.
Finish
Dry, spicy. Lingers on oak and cedar notes. Cubèbe pepper and exotic fruit.
Comment
A beautifully balanced and matured dram. Rich, complex, aristocratic.
