- Not bad !!
Lots of fruits and a sharp but not agressive sweetness coming up first. Soft vanilla and malty grain. Little wood and a fine touch of sherry.
Good mouthfilling with more oak and lots of sugar swimming in some oil but also a light touch of sour freshness giving a little bitterness near the end together with some salt on the lips. Nice, soft, interesting and very smooth drinking away.
Medium finish, not drying out with a very little bitterness and salty lips.
- N: Black bananas, old [corn] grain, super-ripe tomatoey orchard fruits, some nuttiness, dried fruits, hints of dried coconut, caramel-vanilla fungal, yeasty/fizzy, bitter putty, muddy dunnage,… Its more like an old blend.
T: Old soft sugary-sharpness, old cask oak, oily/waxy orangey apricot [Serge] fruits, soft-fresh [spearmint/liquorice] tincture and a waxy-floury, winey=sherried development with a soft-sharp>fresh bite throughout - neat or otherwise.
F: Waxy, dryish, heather herbal, heavy caramel, fresh vanilla and hints of shortbread. A bed of malty-oaky tobacco & vanilla with way too obvious E150a at the death and a little coal/ash - bitter-sour.
C: Somewhat generic/idiosyncratic of the era and the bottler. Lacking in clarity, delivers more like a blend. Good enough.
Scores a C
