    Complex Speyside whisky from the "Old & dignified" category at SMWS. It benefits from both water and time. In fact, it changes quite a bit every ten minutes or so. If it wasn't for the spices that are a bit too dominant for my taste, this could have been a superb dram in my book.
    • Nose
      Started off with biting aromas so I gave it a good 20 minutes to breath. Upon coming back to it, it was a lot calmer but still relatively spicy with chilli and cinnamon. Hints of fresh fruits, green apples. There is vanilla too, but it remains in the background. Water brings the vanilla out more strongly. There is more sweetness alongside the tamed spices now, reminiscent of gingerbread. After another ten minutes, it got rounder still, with more wooden aromas, hints of tobacco and sweet honey melon.
    • Taste
      First sip and I like it better on the palate already, although the mouth feel is thin. There is lots of wood, some vanilla. Spices come through still, especially pepper and chilli. The addition of water cannot quite make those spices disappear, but they're brought down somewhat. It's fruitier now and slightly creamy... dark chocolate with cherry and pepper.
    • Finish
      Long with wood, tobacco and bitter dark chocolate.

    "If these walls could talk they would have stories to tell. We were moved into a heritage boardroom in a historic building, the paintings of all the chairmen peering off the walls, a large polished wooden table, big leather seats and the scent of tobacco, Marsala, Madeira, Sherry and Port consumed over centuries in the air. Let’s sit down and enjoy Prosciutto melon balls followed by rich sweet sticky cherry pie, ginger chocolate biscuits and a glass of dry Sercial Madeira wine. With a tiny drop of water freshly baked dark chocolate banana bread muffins appeared and we happily dipped warm sour dough bread into roasted walnut oil."
