1 of only 263 bottles from cask no. 981Mid gold, with khaki lights and a fine, moderate bead. A slight nose prickle with chocolate malt and hessian, when nosed on warm hands. At first in the glass, the aroma is of chocolate boxes (possibly cherry liqueur chocs) later some fondant and dry peat. A very pleasant texture with a sweet initial taste, drying with sackcloth and ashes in the aftertaste. Water continues chocolates, fondant and ashes, with maritime under-notes on the nose. The texture is soft, the taste lightly sweet to start, with some salt and a whisper of peat in the warming finish.
