* I compared directly with the Benriach CS batch 2, which is not so complex, it is more straightforward, sharper and woodier. Both have a nice dose of sweetness in the scent and finish, Benriach CS maybe more in the finish.
Sweetness after chocolate and sherry, spices. Prunes (certainly not as strong as in Gold Cock). There is certainly less roughness and more sweetness than Benriach CS.
Beautifully smooth, full, sweet - sherry and overripe fruit. Nicely balanced, spice, pleasant woodiness. Complex, delicate. Compared to Benriach CS, this is not so pronounced.
Spicy and woody. Sweeter, medium length.
