I like this one a little better than the Strathisla 1960/2006 40% because this one has definitely more oomph. I tried to compare also against the Strathisla 1960 book of kells but it's way too different as that is a bourbon cask.
Intense, dried fruits, plums, figs, dates, acacia honey, toffee, espresso, dark chocolate with pecan, hints of (good) leather, sherry wood, whiffs of menthol, xmas spice, brown sugar and molasses, pipe tobacco - excellent!
Little punchy, oily, little creamy, liquorice, subtle sweetness, more dark chocolate, espresso or rather a ristretto, more menthol and some eucalyptus, heavy sherry wood, little tannic, still some dried fruits - great!
Medium long, warm, more woody, darkest chocolate, more tannic, herbal, probably a little bit drying, a tad bitter
