After trying the 12yo as an introduction I was eager to try the Revival. I was reading really good stuff about this bottle and so the expectations were quite high.

On the nose I am getting lots of sweetness, caramel and wine gums. Compared to the 12yo it is darker (but not sweeter) in color and nose. There is dark chocolate, ripe oranges, wild honey and even eucalyptus. A complex profile, everything is really round and nicely integrated. It is a strong and dense aroma, like a very sweet and complex fog of stewed oranges and lots of other ingredients.

It has an intense attack but nonetheless is really soft. The full body is quite chewy. On the palate is caramel, honey, some spices like ginger and even some saltiness. There is also a nutty bitter-sweetness.

The finish is dry, long and sweet. There are some oaky spices and oranges.

Overall a darker version of the 12yo. Again a nice value for money.
