Tasting Notes
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Glowing amber - Nose: Rich and fruity with perfumed wood, in fact it's almost very old sun-dried driftwood. - Palate: Very rich and intense with apricot and butterscotch and it's deliciously chewy whilst retaining a very creamy mouth-feel. - Finish: Long rich and very tender - Overall Impression: I'm very impressed, especially with the tenderness. Not quite a great, but really not far away.
Oliver KlimekColour: Bright amber - Nose: Very strong. Honey, apricots, creme brulee, vanilla, polished wood, hints of cinnamon. - Palate: Apricots, apple crumble, vanilla, toffee, milk chocolate, hints of cinammon and pepper. - Finish: Very long and fruity, only minimal wood spice. - Overall: A big single grain from the days when they still made it from maize. This gives it a touch of bourbon but with an overwhelming fruitiness and less wood despite its high age.
