Tasting Notes by WhiskyFun.com (december 1, 2015):
Nose: oh, shoe polish! Green tobacco leaves! Mineral riesling! Cough syrup! One style that we enjoy a lot at WF towers, even if this came unexpected. 2002? Are they sure that wasn’t 1952?
Mouth: perhaps a little drying, but this surely isn’t modern. Where else, except in Campbeltown, would you find some salted sweet mustard and this much tobacco? Curiously un-round, but very perfect – if you like this super-old style. Even older than the label.
Finish: long, sooty, fino-ish. Fried bacon and chocolate.
Comments: a surprise, I had thought this baby would be jammy and honeyed. Ha, preconceptions…
SGP:362 – 87 points.
