    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 170 bottles from cask no. 3265

    Deep gold with copper lights, in the bottle; 18CT gold in the glass. A mild nosefeel, and an aroma reminiscent of Eve’s Pudding (apple sponge), becoming Tarte Tatin (caramelised apple tart) and then gaining a slight crab-apple tartness. Water makes it fresher and more estery initially, then introduces a light Almond Dainty note. At full strength it has a voluptuous texture and a light sweet taste, becoming tart in the finish; water smooth’s it out, reducing both. An early evening malt.
