Official Tasting Notes:
Nose: Toasted marshmallow, almond, red fruits, a curious, perfumed top note, like parma violets. Some classic buttery notes (vanilla and fudge) baked apples, gentle fragrant wood smoke and freshly baked bread and beeswax.
Palate: Oily, viscous mouthfeel, gently peppery. More baked apples, fudge, gentle citrus, orange blossom honey and hints of eucalyptus oil.
Finish: Sweet aniseed on the aftertaste, along with some leather and oak.
"Offers an extraordinary intensity and complexity, which speaks of its great age, its irreplaceable spirit from a bygone era-and its inspired assemblage from highly sought after casks"
"A stunning , silky blend of a single malt where the flavour profile-and even texture-has obviously been sculpted. As much a work of art as a dram"

"A remarkable glass and well worth trying. The price alone will mean you take your time – which is essential. A classic slow whisky."
