Tasting Notes

"Much like the 1997, apples and pears are observed, but there is a pinch of salt as well. Unlike its predecessor, there is a slightly smoked wood aspect from the char on the 1st fill barrels utilized. More influence from the barrels is discovered on the palate with coconut and vanilla. This is a very tidy and tasty dram particularly when you take price into account. "
