- Nice and rounded. A friend to a lot of persons.
PX influence = 100%. Dried fruit (mainly sultanas), caramel, maple syrup, cocao, honey, apricot and peach. Still a little "fraicheur" of mint.
Sweet and coating, with loads of dark sugar, dried fruit, stewed plum, sherry, cocoa, coffee and mint.
Still syrup-y, with ample dried fruit (this time, more date than raisins), apricot, cocoa, and some pepper.

1971 cask 1436
1972 cask 712
1989 cask 2917

- Transferring previous Note (2011.12.29) content into a Tasting Note.
quite a faint nose
as well. couverture/chocolate, hazelnuts, juniper, old wood, tea
leaves, mushrooms, dusted sugar, mushrooms, meaty (85)
chocolate syrup with a good portion of leather, some herbal cough drops, then turning sweeter, the dusted sugar again, (88).
then even some malty notes next to the complex sherry & malt notes,
quite a bit of dryness as well but hardly any wood to taste, sligtly
card board ish, feels somewhat alcoholic in the end at the beginning
which seems to subside and is replaced by some more syrupy sweet
