    Lovely simple profile but you must have a sweet tooth to enjoy it.

    This is well over 50 years old and its a blend. Excellent stuff.

    If this is what old blends are capable of then bring them on. It is not complex, not powerful just enjoyable.

    Recommended.
    • Nose
      Colour wise it has a slightly pink hue.

      This smells really old, on old books, leather arm chairs etc.

      It is like sitting in an old library. Some honey and nice notes of pineapple, syrup/treacle sponge and custard

      Barley sugar sweets, and clotted cream.

      It smells old and also surprisingly fresh which I put down to the grain component.
    • Taste
      Creamy sweetness initially but strangely slight thin also ,  sweet sugared coffee, barley sugar, candied fruits, still getting the custard (vanilla) and definite pineapple chunks in syrup.
    • Finish
      Medium length with a lovely sweet finish.
