Nose: Apples, raisins, dried apricots, butterscotch, a waxed wood table with a vase of flowers, whiffs of a dusty old cupboard and a wee bit of smoke.
Palate: A gentle but very notiecable smokiness wraps around a rich fruit cocktail, and yes it is sprinkled with rose petals. Not very sweet but immensely flavourful. Where is the wood?
Finish: Endless, fruity, slightly dry and slightly smoky.
Overall: Simply magnificent. Most of these bottles are offered to investors. But anyone buying this bottle to increase their wealth by a few bucks misses out on a once-in-a-liftetime opportunity. If you can afford this whisky, please drink it!
