sampled in 2016
Exceptional. so much freshness for a 44yo whisky. In the same line of good old bowmores with tropical fruits, pineapple, passion fruit, bananas, tangerines, apricots, beeswax, honey, pepper, vanilla
Light pepper, caramel, seaweed in the background. figs, toffee, tropical fruits and citrus. smoky and salty notes slide up. very complex yet still the balance and texture are just right. still amazes me the power it shows for the age.
Elegant and long. Melon and exotic fruits moving towards hazelnut and charcoal fire. Seriously good finish
