    A treat from Phil - thankyou once again!

    N: Egg whites and plastic-y air-born farmy notes kick off proceedings but these initial aromas will lift, somewhat. Whilst struggling to really enjoy the nose, it improves all the time, no doubt needing a few weeks to open out. Emerges with water as a savoury-sweet cereal number, ideally aged with the elements well integrated - possibly in the bottle too.
    T: I was unsure about the nose but to taste, ’it’s the business’. Not hugely complexity but faultless to drink given the integration. A little coconut joins the perfectly matured cereal base with touches of this and that. Ideal.
    F: Continues it’s immaculate path with the right amounts of things. Namely honeyed, sultana porridge with full oak support - a dry oiliness with a sweet dry fungal.
    C: Dismiss my notes regarding the nose, I couldn’t give it the time it deserves. Otherwise, I simply love this simple & faultless, dry honeyed distillate-faithful style with many soft layers from many maturing years that dont get in the way/dominate.Scores a B[+]
