This is as good as the 1966 Signatory SV cask 134 but I would give the nod to this one, actually not sure both are great
At first there is a very strong blackberry/blueberry note like a deep filled fruit pie.
In with the fruit there is something medicinal with peat fumes and hints of furniture polish.
Ribena on steroids probably describes this.
Like some of the very best old sherried whiskies but with an extra dimension.
Thick & syrupy with bucketful's of dark fruits, hints of peat.
very jammy indeed so the fruit is blackcurrant, blackberry but with hints of redberry/cranberry overlaying it.
Hints of mulled wine spice.
Lovely, I am struggling for superlatives here
The finish is good length, remaining this, syrupy and fruity with a zesty twang on the tail and your palate and tongue are felling refreshed.
With water, the palate is a little thinner but a spice bomb has been released and once again that extra little ingredient ,that is medicinal that lifts this from excellent to superb
