Color: gold

Nose: Clear wood smell: lumber yard and tires, as if almost smoky; maybe some light brazil nut.

Palate: Surprisingly sweet entry, and then WOOD, simply. Oily toffee mutes any bitterness, so it is smooth and balanced.

Finish: Wood and toffee linger pleasantly. After a while bitter on roof of mouth beckons another sip.

Far better than the 10-year in its smoothness, the 17-year is easy to drink. I usually like something more complex in flavor, but this makes a decent and bold statement of pure lumber.
