A deep gold colour with moderate to good beading. This starts with a very light nose, and a little nose prickle, unusual for a whisky of this age. Underneath, we noted pale sponge cake with whipped cream, topped with fresh strawberries (similar to our previous bottling of Strathmill which we suggested might be suitable for enjoying at Wimbledon). Becoming dusty with water, possibly a hint of cedar-wood cigar wrapper; only the dried edges of the sponge cake remain. Full and creamy in the mouth; sweetish, with vanilla sponge and dry coconut in the dryish finish, and milk chocolate in the aftertaste.
