Tasting Notes

From whisky writer, Charlie MacLean MBE:-

Appearance: Deep umber with magenta lights; old polished rosewood.
Aroma: A complex, mellow nose-feel, still vivacious after all these years. Top notes of almond oil, scented hand-soap, backed by sandalwood and gorse flowers on a warm day. A whiff of peat-smoke in the empty glass.
Palate: An oily texture, and lightly sweet to start (dates, salted plums, figs), drying elegantly (traces of dry Oloroso Sherry), towards a lengthy menthol finish. Drop of water increases spiciness.
Summary: Vibrant and wholly satisfying. One of the finest malts I have ever encountered.
