Curiously, I bought and tried the 17yo first and was smitten by it... decided to buy the 12yo, took a few glasses and left it for a month and have now revisited.. Could well be better than the 17yo...
I love this stuff, bursting with fruit, citrus-zest freshness, mint, cloves, apples and jasmine, and that's just the nose. The arrival is a blend of sweet almonds, nutmeg, lime, bitter chocolate and white pepper.
This moves onto a a dry, flinty finish with a tobacco,parchment and cardamon aftertaste... exceptional quality..
The 17yo is exquisite, almost too refined... the 12yo I'm discovering is a complex and robust delight...
