Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/11/2015

Appearance

(sample bottle batch 2, No. 76 of 600) Clear but not bright, light rose-golden amber.

Aroma

Piney juniper with nutty woodiness.

Taste

Dry and spicy. Strong juniper and newly sawn pine tannins with black tea, cracked black pepper spice and calamine floral notes.

Aftertaste

Dry, black pepper spiced piney juniper.

Overall

Dry wood tannins from cask aging dominate this spicy old tom, masking subtle notes from botanicals such as rose. Perhaps too long in cask.
