Clear, golden yellow.
Malty, biscuit nose with wafts of fresh coffee, apple skin, balsawood and subtle hints of tinned pineapple. More sweet biscuit and pineapple with water.
Quite sweet, fruity and rounded with delicate wafts of smoke, strong bourbon notes, hints of espresso and oily mineral notes. Water dries, killing this malts attractive richness.
Refreshingly clean finish features minty, grapefruit and flinty, minerally notes.
Rich and biscuity with bitter chocolate and espresso. While we like this 16 Year Old we morn the demise of the 45% alc.vol. 15 year old.
