Attractive rather than complex, but very attractive at that.
1985, Aged 16 Years
Nose: Medium-bodied and slightly floral but with a rich malty core. Water reveals a buttery richness with honeyed fruits, hot cross buns and spices.
Palate: A dry-ish start with light spice and nut, then citrus oils, hazelnut and an overall pleasant texture. Well balanced.
Finish: Dry with a touch of smoke.
Comment: Attractive rather than complex, but very attractive at that.
Nose: Subtlety in action. Perfumes, dried apricot, aniseed, jasmine tea, dried spring flowers, green grape, marzipan.
Palate: Smooth, silky and creamy. A caress of mingled flavours. All nose promises are delivered.
Finish: Dry, spice-festooned.
Comment: Graceful and characterful. To be sipped on a midsummer starlit night. A true dancing dram.
