Tasting Notes

"Clearly a very mature malt whisky, there's subtle smoke, cigar tobacco and touches of sandalwood, but also notes of vanilla, orange peel, sultanas and peaches. The palate is velvety and buttery, there's a good amount of leather and tobacco, combined with gentle pepper and pleasing oaky notes. A high-quality blended malt that shows its age in all the right ways."
