The nose is quite rich and well-balanced. There are notes of full, thick dried fruits and sultanas. Hints of apple peel and Bramley apple. Notes of winter spice; cinnamon and cloves, cereal sweetness and juicy barley notes. The sherry notes and rich and full. The palate is quite full and smooth. There are notes of juicy fruits and sherried sultanas. There are some hints of rubbed petals and peppery charred oak. The finish is quite soft with a good clarity and freshness.
Like I hadn't tasted scotch before
picked up a bottle of this -- the tasting notes are right on. All I could say was after the first glass I just wanted more and more. This is a new realm of scotch whiskey, building on a base of 18-25 year master scotches, this is a unique experience. treat yourself. not a bad price considering the age and rarity.
