Very clynelishesk & bourbon cask-like: honey, flint sparks, pineapple, salt spray on rocks, and so a tiny bit of sulfur mixed with citrus fruits.
Creamy and supple in the mouth, then candied ginger and lemon curd are added. Salt almond chocolate and waxy notes. Here he knows how to score.
Relatively inconspicuous, a sparsely sugared grapefruit increasingly sneaks in.
For 21 years and 46% very robust. Needs a lot of time in the glass, better than the 18 year old original bottling and also the 14 year old. But now no complexity grenade. Typical case of a malt that satisfies me but that I no longer need. For real spring malts I prefer a much more fruity bourbon barrel.
Tasty, but far too expensive for what he can.
