Nose: Dark sugar, caramelised banana, vanilla, very creamy and rich. Then apple strudel, with all of those pastry notes, spices and sultanas. Hints of date and marmalade, and then a touch of cigar box. Really enticing, hints of grist too, and citrus, then a touch of smoke.
Palate: Very, very smooth and rounded. Just fills the palate with notes of tropical fruits: watermelon, pineapple, coconut, then ginger notes, hints of sherry, a touch of mixed peels and mixed nuts.
Finish: Long, spicy finish. Incredible rich and complex, one of the most stunning 40 year old whiskies we've ever tried!
