Some might find the finish a touch too sweet, but I loved it.
19 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: The nose is really quite complex, with oak spices, leather and a hint of new wool. It noses like an old whisky. Some notes of shoe polish, too.
Palate: A really lovely palate which gives cherry jam, soft summer fruits and nutmeg and cinnamon spices. There is a nice savoury note to this, balancing out the sweetness, like a good chutney.
Finish: Sweet, delicious and rounded. This dram is very well constructed.
Comment: Some might find the finish a touch too sweet, but I loved it.
Nose: Dusty, malty and earthy with a faint industrial note, however some honey and lightly creamy oak balances. Showing maturity with a late herbal/grassiness.
Palate: Begins a little austere until the honey and creamy oak arrives. Hints of barley, dusty oak, coffee and malt on the middle along with a slight industrial note. \n
Finish: Long and a little hot with a dry barley and straw finish. The creamy oak lingers pleasantly. \n
Comment: It has charm and thankfully enough sweet honey and creamy oak \nto balance its industrial character.
