Color
Pale gold
Nose

Rich biscuity notes. Honey and toffee. Shoe polish. Greengage. Vanilla ice cream. A distant touch of wet cellar. Water releases lighter floral notes.

Taste

Lovely velvet feel. Rich, oily. Complex. Oak and age give a bold structure to the palate.

Finish

Spicy, dry. Slightly bitter. Like gentian root.

Comments

A dash of water is perfect. Skip the pudding and enjoy your dram with a shortbread.

Nose

The classic Glenlivet is there, but its overwhelmed by the huge vanilla. Crystalised fruit everywhere. Fabulously sweet.

Taste

Plenty of fruit sweeties. I'm almost crunching on the sugar. This is amazing.

Finish

Drying at full strength, but a spot of water makes it lovely.

Comments

Presumably what naddura would be like at 28yo. Brilliant!

It's better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.
