|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Glowing rich amber
- Nose: In the foreground of the nose is a very well looked after and polished solid oak dining table, but after a few minutes this lightens somewhat to include some delightful and extremely floral notes, almost akin to my favourite Alpine meadow in full Spring-time bloom.
- Palate: I can only describe this as 'full power' as it exhudes that well polished oak whilst still managing to find room for fresh herbal flora.
- Just 4 drops of water manage to make this even more intensely floral and also considerably smoother on the palate.
- A further 4 drops of water now create a much lighter nose which is still very floral, whereas the palate still comprises lots of that lovely old oak, but somehow appears more 'open'.
- Finish: Delightfully long, very long, maybe extremely long, but no matter how long it is, it just can't be long enough as I could savour this for at least the next month or two. **Truly magnificent with the first 4 drops of water** |
|Oliver Klimek||Colour: Dark amber -
Nose: Dried figs, berries, pineapple, tobacco. -
Palate: Extremely fruity, notably pineapple and passion fruit but also many other flavours, almost no woodyness. -
Finish: Very long and fruity. -
Overall: An amazing 38 year old malt that does not show its age very obviously. Almost entirely fruity and practically without wood notes. Highly enjoyable. |
