- Classic, long-aged grain profile on the nose. Lashings of creamy vanilla, icing sugar, creme brûlée and ripe fruits (including rhubarb, blueberries, banana, and honeydew melon) are wonderfully balanced with well-integrated oak. A drop of water released notes of old leather, some pencil shavings and a hint of whiteboard marker pens. I love this profile, especially when the weather is warmer. Remarkably similar, sweet vanilla profile on the palate (you could almost serve this as a desert after a meal!), although here the oak becomes slightly more evident, adding extra texture and bringing some bolder tannins to the mix (but never overbearing: this is not overly 'oaked'). The finish is also sweet and creamy, with the oak lingering to remind you that this has spent a long time in the cask. A fantastic example of a well-aged, soft and sweet (but not boring) grain whisky, offering the kind of profile rarely encountered below four decades in the cask. Unbelievable value for a 40+ year old whisky in the current market too: £70 for a full bottle!
