N: It’s silly season ladies and jelly-spoons. We find ourselves in the high-octane sherry-oaked tincture-zone! I find whiskies of this ilk and at this age, require time and management – something incongruent at festivals.
T: “Full-on stupid”, says BA. No kidding!
F: Sweet oak to the max, finishing with a mad bitter-dryness.
C: Not sure I gave this enough time to score it properly, or maybe I wasn’t in the mood for it this morning!
