Bottled at 49 years old, cask number 2111, a sherry hogshead yielded just 158 bottles.
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
