    Official/Producer tasting note:

    nose: intense,
    full bodied aromas of dark treacle, sour plums and rich prune syrup
    combine with fragrant herbal notes and faint cigar smoke.

    palate:
    an impactful sherried character laden with dark prunes and molasses. A
    torrent of vibrant orange bitters and dark espresso holds intriguing
    hints of eucalyptus and pine needles.

  7. VicLin did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Despite this whisky has been rated 95.52 by 23 members, I doubt any of these bottles has been opened. If you ask me, it's pathetic if a whisky is highly rated just because some people want a bottle in their collections more valuable.
