Taste: Sweetish, light, rich. Vanilla, lemonade notes, fresh pastry, citrus fruits, ginger. Industrial notes, minerality, light smokiness.
Finish: Slightly longer than average, sweetish with a little pepperiness. Vanilla, citrus, barrel, industrial notes, light smoke. At the end, berry sourness appears.
Conclusion: If we consider it as a basic 12 year old malt, then it is a good, balanced, quite rich and bright whisky. If you look at it as a jubilee model, it's not a big deal. At the moment, given its price, it is very expensive and unjustified, if only not in the collection. On the other hand, at the start of sales back in 2003, I think I beat off every pound spent on it.
