    Tasting a 30 ml sample.
    Nose: Very lively and bright - a thread of smoke from roasted chestnuts, orange zest, apricot jam, some candlewax, camphor cream, then fruity.
    Taste: Surprisingly smooth with waxy and fruity notes, mild smoke comes after oranges and raisins. Dry apricots, cherries, figs and a touch of ripe mango. Nice and sweet. Great!, as I was afraid it would have gotten too dry and cardboardy, but no so at all.
    Finish: Long, quite long. Fresh and delicate. Marmalade, roasted pecan nuts, marzipan, then citrus fruit notes. Woody yet not dryingly tannic. Lovely cherry jam comes last.
    Overall: A real miracle – so strong, but clean and vital at the same time – after 70 years in the cask!
    By far the best malt I have tasted so far...
