Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonTotal cardemom, barbecue spices, very spicy, dryish and lively indeed. So much wood influence! Taste in full balance with the nose. Very big and packed-full of spices and special fruits. The aftertaste is really bitter, fernet-style, and lasts.
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Very dark mahogany (liquid treacle toffee) - Nose: Aromatic, very aromatic. Floral in a rich and dark kind of way with aged oak in the background. - Palate: Oooh nice, very nice indeed. How can this be so rich but yet so subdued and civilised with lots of floral lightness? It's a gentle giant in the nicest possible way. - Finish: I thought medium to long, but then it just continued repeating in a delightfully very long way. - Overall Impression: Such a dark and rich floral delight. It's wonderful, magnificent, another true "Great" by a country mile.
