NOSE: brown sugar, strawberry jam, mint, orange marmalade, herbal, tannic over-brewed black tea, chocolate-covered prunes.

TASTE: syrup consistency, but then with time it becomes looser. It explodes in your mouth with big spices, dried fruit and cranberries towards the finish with a lot of tannins that accompany the entire experience.

FINISH: mineral, medium, cranberries again.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: I'd never had a 40-year old whisky before. But now I know for a fact that old age doesn't equal substance. This is true for people as well. It's a nice sherried malt with lots and lots of sherry. But you can do much better by simply sticking to Aberlour, Glendronach and Glenfarclas standard releases. And, as a bonus, you'll save a lot of money by doing so as well.
