Nose: Sweet vanilla spice, parma violets, toffee apple and dried fruits. A little light pastry, with cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper. Incredibly complex.
Palate: Despite its age, this is still wonderfully sweet and creamy, with vibrant, warming notes of red fruits and beautiful malt. Granary toast with honey and salty butter, truffle and toffee brittle.
Finish: Fresh finish, with pear juice and toasty, juicy barley.
