Like a stewed tea in colour.
Smells cask strength, still a lot of power coming through. Rich demerara sugar, toffee and caramel all there.
Just as big on the taste as on the nose, fresh figs, pear drops and toffee apples.
A drop of water in this releases a lot of the aromas and flavours that have been trapped in the cask for decades.
A time honoured dram that hides nothing.
