I love the 12 point stag on the bottle. It appeals to me and looks great. It's been on my "to try" list for ages but you know how it is... So many bottles, so little time...
The nose is a bit odd. It doesn't scream drink me. It's musty, strong sense of raisins and dark fruits. I also get a strong sense of (believe it or not) pancake batter. Not bad but it's a little bit weird.
The flavour is better than the nose. Rich, raisins, sherry and vanilla.
The finish is medium to long with sweet raisins an spicy tang.
Verdict. Worth the wait and I'm glad I still have half of the bottle left.
