N- Sceptical to think that this is any good after the lame 12YO Regency. But were pleasantly surprise by the expressive aroma. No sign of weak or overly pungent young liquid in here, good malty sphere with full and lasting earthy notes, plenty of drunken cherry, honey and pear, some caramel but not cloying. Reasonably well packed with well integrated aromas.P- Milky and firm with good width of earthiness. Honey, butterscotch with bitter dark chocolate, rounded with hint of sweet smokes.
F- Medium, lasting earthiness for for a finely spicy and peppery finish. Thick texture with more butterscotch arriving at the end. Another quality blend.
