A Whisky made for the pub visit:
You can drink it without spending much time with the nosing ... and it gets better with every sip.
Simple but balanced and satisfying.
Moist bark and grain, 'earthy' flavors, some smoke, a bit of charcoal, some orange in the distance, sometimes a hint of orange blossom honey.
Creamy, sweet, spicy, powerful;
Vanilla, Sherry influence, subtle citrus notes becoming stronger over time, dark chocolate;
(Butter) cookies, oak becomes more, suddenly Spearrips with Demerara, distant orange notes, something 'old';
then also hints of pepper and a memory of honey-sweetness.
Refreshing towels, citrus, vanilla pod, pleasant bitterness and wood aromas, dark pastries, hint of cocoa powder or dark chocolate, sweetness of honey and old yellow jams, apricots, then green salad and garden herbs;
'burnt' caramel with dark vanilla pod, salt appears.
Typical 60s powder and floral aromas - very pleasant.
