Tasting Notes by galg

Nose: sweet with some pear, vanilla, sweet and warm wood with some sour notes too: lemon, unripe green apple peel, spice. After some time getting some butterscotch.

Palate: oily and viscous feel to it. Starting its sweet malty, caramel ( the good caramel , right? no worries whisky geeks.) spicy. Cereals and sandalwood. Sweeter with some sherry notes , almonds and vanilla and traces of lemon and ripe oranges and some oak: not too much but quite noticeable, and adds a lovely dimension to it all.

Finish: Polished oak, Semi-sweet sultanas and hint of prune.

One of the best OB anCnocs I’ve ever had. it’s really a notch better than the 16 and the vintages to date. good work, and now it’s high on my wish list for purchases for this year. Highly recommended.
