Nose: Spicy stuff, followed by fruitier sultanas, some black currant, cranberries, a dash of salt, while still quite sugary as in Demerara sugars, grape peel and a very faint hint of tobacco. a very nice and complex nose.

Palate: Spicy and pepper on entry too, with a lot of classy old wood, dusty cellar sort of, then enters the fruit, with a sprinkle of white pepper followed by apple, bitter grape peel, as in very dry white wine, sultana, some butterscotch, not very salty at all. rather playing the bitter-sweet-fruity-woody game with twists at random points in time, which make it all the more interesting.

Finish : Bitter wood and sweet sultana , fig and some black fruit again.

So, how was it? Top dram no doubt, and now I am beginning to regret not getting the 21 year old released last year… oh well, can’t have them all, can I?

Super complex, super nice. a big like. Superb stuff.
