Nose: Some rather unusual medicinal notes, bandages and camphor, mixing with quince jelly. Some beautiful notes of ripe apricots, greengages, light honey, crystallised chestnuts. Keeps developing on sweet white wine, dried oranges, camomile, with some whiffs of coal smoke and even something maritime. Subtle and delicate.
Palate: Lots of oomph and a nice sweetness. Rather malty, with some notes of sugared cereals, dried oranges, caramelized pastries. Some bold notes of over-baked cake, maple syrup, roasted peanut. Crispy praline and nougat.
Finish: Long and creamy finish on fruit jams and candy sugar.
Overall: A concentrated, dense dram and very, very enjoyable. Totally flawless.
