    Empty Glass: 
    I was so over occupied with my other notes (and the lights of Las
    Vegas!), I missed most of the empty glass.  I recall a lot of wood
    notes, more of the damp library and over worked sherry.  Things you
    don't smell any more; things that are earmarks of old whisky.
    • Nose
      Rich!
      Super rich malty nose with a huge whack of fruits!  There is a musty
      note like a damp library, but it doesn't detract from the malt's
      richness, instead amplifying it.  There is a lot of wood here, not new
      wood, but old oak with wood polish and ancient must lumber too.  The
      fruits are a combination of many things, macerated/stewed purple fruits
      (think plums and strawberries), over ripe almost rotten fruit (those
      raspberries that were on the counter too long), and hints of dark dried
      plums.
    • Taste
      The
      richness doesn't stop here.  Rich warmth of malt and stewed fruits take
      centre stage, the malt playing second fiddle isn't to be missed either.
       The wood spice almost dances between, offering sharp punches to break
      up that rich spirit.  Lots of wood spice through the mid-palate,
      cinnamon, clove, mace, cardamom and the like.  There are some dark notes
      of raisin and something different, like long pepper or a hint of
      truffle in the background.
    • Finish
      Velvety
      and long, this goes on for quite some time.  Richness doesn't seem to
      subside, but more sherry-vanilla creme comes out now.  The sherry wood
      almost dominates the finish, but there is an interesting poached pear
      note here too.  Worked leather, library dust and wonderful soft oak wrap
      up a lush dram.
