Nose: A sweet nose with notes of Tokaji, stem ginger, cola, honeyed malt and nuts. Has a jammy feel to it.
Palate: Sweet and malty and still jammy. Quite wine-like actually. It’s big on barley, and rather spicy, yet its racing top notes bely its 42 years.
Finish: Tangy, woody. Develops on barley, which gains hints of blackcurrant and spiced apple.
