Review and Tasting

Sampled before 1st May 2011


Clear, reddy brown.


Surprisingly fruity nose considering its age. Toffee apple, maderia/sherry and notes of cognac.


Fabulous palate shows vanilla, toffee, Christmas cake, cigar smoke and good malt notes. It is surprisingly sweet.


Rich Christmas pudding, cognac-like rancio notes. This is a truly fabulous malt and led me to create a new rating: 5+/5
