Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonCherries, dark chocolate, darkly winey, dates, prunes, quite extreme and special. Exceptional sherry influence. So drinkable, round yet big on all kinds of fruits. Really something special. No off-notes anywhere, Yummy!
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Can they get any darker? - Nose: Rich antique leather, lightly toasted currants and raisins, my olde worlde country house study (antique leather and oak, musty first editions ..) luxury, pure luxury. - Palate: Delightfully rich and creamy. Whilst the leatheriness concentrates on the middle of the palate, the dark fruitiness caresses the sides. Wonderful. - Finish: Very long and delightfully ancient. - Overall impression: I can say no other than wonderfully "Great".
