Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSpecial attractive slightly sourly sherry influence. Positively so. Lots of spices and slightly closed, needs water methinks. The special style is mirrored in the taste. Real tasty and intense on spices, wood. Drying aftertaste.
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Pale amber - Nose: Ooohh this is deep, a little antiseptic and very Atlantic. There's a dark fruitiness on the nose too which exudes raisins and cherries, but that Atlantic-ness is just quite stunning. It's maritime, lightly salty and a little woody, just like an aged Atlantic pier. - Palate: This has an earthiness, not quite peaty but again very Atlantic and quite massively intense as it sits right on the front of the palate leading into the long finish - Finish: Very long. - Overall Impression: Deep, stunning and I love the Atlantic effect. Definitely a "Great".
