    Tried this at the Whisky Live show in London some years ago and I can truthfully say I've not tasted anything to beat it yet. The description "like a hug from your Mum" couldn't be more apt - there are notes of old Chanel perfume, cream puff, handbags, and just a hint of violets. Very little water required, if any. Just beautiful.

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Evening sun glow
    Flavour: Old & dignified

    The nose gave us happy, homey feelings – ‘like a hug from my
    mum’ said the Malt-meister; mellifluous sweetness of maple syrup, marzipan and
    heather honey – but also marmalade on toast, jaffa cakes, leather and polished
    wood. The palate impressed with its chewy textures, aniseed, tobacco and
    coconut depth – plus its minty fresh liveliness, like mint choc-chip ice-cream.
    The reduced nose suggested a wooden box containing rolling tobacco, Coco Pops,
    After Eight mints and menthol cigarettes. The reduced palate – light leather,
    tobacco, Arm and Hammer toothpaste and orange zest. A time-stopping dram from
    the Elgin distillery that was once a brewery.

    Drinking Tip: An after dinner or late evening dram - but go
    easy on the water
