    Will certainly come back and add to these notes. I was lucky enough to score a 750ml bottle of this, and it brings me something new each time I approach it. Lovely dram. 
    • Nose
      Slight hints of fruit. 
    • Taste
      Buttery. Heavy buttery (coating) mouthfeel. 
    • Finish
      Long delicious finish. 

  3. numen scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    from a friend
    • Nose
      Some oxidative sherry and light red fruit notes but it's all pretty
      soft and subtle strawberry, jammy baked goods. Vanilla and chocolate
      malt. A slightly salty note as well. Peaches, apricots, and other soft
      fruit in a salad (pears, perhaps). Lemon and waxy zest and wood. Evolves
      a bit with air, and some floral notes develop. (with water) More on
      pineapple and a mix of 10-15 year old Sauternes with a light a floral
      (sour) Petite Champagne cognac. Sorry for being so referential, but when
      the whisky fits...
    • Taste
      Cool fruit salad, honey, malt, black baking spices, pepper, lemon, and a
      bit of spicy ginger in honey. Big wood. Much more direct here, less
      fruit, and little sherry. (with water) Ah, rather malty and smoothed
      out. Wood's still there, but it's not out of whack. Swims well.
    • Finish
      Decent, not spectacular, and not problematic. It's enjoyable and there's
      not too much left to add. Pretty much the definition of a 'B' to me.
