    N: Soft-smoked lavender, thin dirty mechanical/sooty sweet jammy quince jelly,… Any briny ex-bourbon cask resinousness as dropped off from this particular bottle opened many years ago.

    T&F: Really soft and lacking in body with a deep/faint sootiness, spent [one-use BBQ] charcoal,.. more [briny] lavender, and with a deep yet distant mineral vegetal conclusion.

    C: Despite being a tired bottle, the story remains [as it has in recent years since] the same – I’m left wanting for more.

    Pretty balanced and rinkable
    • Nose
      87 87
      Malty, dry hay, little farmy, seabreeze, some iodine, whiffs of smoke, sherry notes, little meaty, ham and bacon, chocolate - not bad
    • Taste
      88 88
      Little punchy, oily, subtle sweetness, salty, little liquorice, little dried fruits, notes of sherry wood, little nutty, hints of milk chocolate, little toffee, caramel
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, warm

    Little sherry influence, but more smoke. Not a well-balanced whisky for me.
