    Subtle and rich but the wood is slightly overpowered. Expected a bit more due to the age, however it's still a proper dram. Especially in this price range.
    • Nose
      80 80
      A whiff of citrus freshness, but it disappears quite soon once it's opened up. Dried fruit notes with some honey and cacao. Sultana biscuits and a touch of hay.

      Sultana biscuits again with some more dried fruits and cacao. Quite light mouthfeel with a bite of oak.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Cacao and oak.

    I don't like it that much today, the 18 is a very clear step more intense and tasty, this one is older on paper, but a tad weaker in terms of aroma, just too little intense, too "flat", despite the recognizable age notes .
    • Nose
      light and fleeting, sweetish, some oak, light fruits, a very flat and fleeting nose compared to the 18, albeit with fine fruit aromas and a certain note of maturity.
    • Taste
      sweetish, tart, oak spiciness, quite pleasant so far, not as tart as expected. But even here not the big aromatic range.
    • Finish
      rather short, very nice, some wood, a few fruits, some astringent mintiness.
