Nose: A stroll down memory lane: old libraries and a lot of wood resin, a surprising note of red grapefruit (but not something I have not sniffed in other older whiskies – I recall one old MOM speysider with this exact aroma) , dark fruits behind all this in addition to dark chocolate, some pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon, wood spices galore, and in a very sexy and enticing way.a bit of heather peat , and maybe a hint of heathery peat smoke, Surprisingly earthy and peaty after all those years, but gently so.
Palate: Enter dried dark fruit, dark chocolate, very creamy, with some toffee. kirsch, and blackberries with in thick liquor.getting more chocolaty with more time on the palate, very mouth coating and rich. a pleasure. slight peat smoke, but very light and heathery.
Finish:Sweet, with a lot of black fruit, sugar, smoke, some traces of plum jam.
