Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Herbal, oaky vanilla, toffee, hay, rooty.
Palate: Rich, spicy, creamy, oak sweetness. Barley.
Finish: Nutty, herbal, creamy, toffee.
Light on the eye, with a nose of soft leather.
A rich spicy floral taste associated with a refill cask. After the initial thrive there is a slight sweet vanilla flavour at the back of your throat.
I recommend adding a couple of drops of water to the 1982. This really lets it come alive, releasing more floral and vanilla notes, with some light nuttiness.
An elegant soft finish.
