Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSlightly restrained, elegant? Hints of licorice and wild strawberries. Kind and inoffensive (and no hint of the wine cask..). Tastewise equally kind, sweetish, easy to drink, berried and uncomplicated.
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Dark teak - Nose: Rich aged oak and leather, marinated (in red wine) nuts and that typical English Christmas cake style. There are also some lightly floral notes which really enhance the experience. - Palate: An initial creaminess to the mouth-feel followed by an intense fruitiness (think Plum, damson & bramble here) with those gentle floral background notes. - Finish: It just goes on and on and on ...... then a suggestion of coconut right at the end. - Overall Impression: Big and intense liquid luxury, I love it and a "Great" too.
