Age: 19 Years Old
Year Bottled: 2014
Style: Single Malt
Intense, grainy Bourbon oak. Gritty tannins. Herbal and hoppy with apricot, honey and tangerine. Hints of rum-like dried fruit. Like a grain whisky with water.
Soft and honeyed with light coffee and oxidised fruit. Darker flavours in the middle as a treacle note emerges. Less oak than the nose. Water emphasises the dried fruit and spices.
Very oily with the herbal note returning and the treacle note lingering. Quite dry and alcoholic neat. Water lengthens but still dry.
My only quibble is that it’s a bit dry on the finish. Best with a drop of water.
