Like a maiden aunt. It's hard to believe that after 31 years in cask it's still this strength!
31 Years Old
Nose: Austere, quite haughty. A wild grassy note with fresh tobacco/unlit cigar. With water there's vanilla, coconut, as well as Rich Tea biscuit. Rich but clean.
Palate: Very pure. Green tea. Good weight on the palate but held in check by a pretty firm structure.
Finish: Long, drying.
Comment: Like a maiden aunt. It's hard to believe that after 31 years in cask it's still this strength!
Nose: Intense, beautifully combined wood and fruit. Juicy apricot. Cedar. Beeswax, polished floors. Vanilla. Delicate gingerbread. A touch of peat.
Palate: Caressing, enveloping, oily. So well in tune with the nose. Fudgey. Nutmeg. Cinnamon.
Finish: Warm, lingering spiciness.
Comment: Well-matured, amazing for its age.
