    Can this one still be found? I would not know. If so, do not hesitate.
    • Nose
      Wonderful and creamy nose on acacia honey, furniture polish, fudge and all sorts of sweet, dark and dried fruits. Quite a bit of eucalyptus and even a bit of thyme. Cough syrup. Typical heather and sweet peat are discernable, but it takes an effort. Pinch of salt.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is the salt that I notice first. Surprising. Then the whole immediately turns sweet. Very strong attack on pepper and cloves. Great body, wonderful mouthfeel. Again dark and dried fruits like figs and prunes.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long on sherry.
