    Its not bad to be honest, this is an old bottling but the profile of the NAS has stayed pretty consistent over the years.

    I have never been a fan of this profile but it does improve as you get down the bottle.
    • Nose
      Resinous, balsamic vinegar, prune juice, red wine to be honest it smells of the trademark Ballentine's vinegar nose
    • Taste
      Light, bitter and woody with some smoked meat notes.

      There is a little salt on the tongue.

      After persevering with it there was some improvement and some plum fruitness.
    • Finish
      Quite long surprisingly?
