N: Only my fourth Banff, so... Overall a grainy/woody, dry fruity, savoury-sweet number accompanied by yeasty vanilla, a few small mushrooms, a pinch of miso, cake decorating candy pieces and foosty glue. Not overly complex.
T: Without losing all its richness nor certainly its vitality, it's plenty woody & drying [understandably], and becoming malty. Add water for a far more thrilling mouthfeel & development, one that swells and blossoms around the palate. Establishes itself as a malty, fruity and woody number, a touch oily-dry.
F: Rather like a very decent old grain whisky with a long sustained woody vanilla finish.
C: Not much wrong with this given its age, though you may want to sample this old timer at a whisky show rather than committing to a full bottle - given the price.Scores a B[+]
