Dave Broom, whisky writer, siger: "To find a whisky of this age is absolutely EXTRAORDINARY. What comes across immediately is the fruit - there's richness and there's depth. You have this wonderful interplay of distillery character, of oak and oxygen. It's a gift that keeps on giving.
"When you taste it, you taste time. You can taste all the vintages and everything that's happened. The concentration of fruits, the layers and the complexity are off the scale. You'd think it's an old whisky but it's not just an old whisky. It's an EXTRAORDINARY whisky."
Noter (Gordon & MacPhail):
Aroma: Sweet stewed fruit aromas combine with fragrant cinnamon spice and aged leather. A hint of aniseed gives way to clementine and beeswax polish.
Taste: Autumnal spice and fruitcake flavours are balanced by cracked black pepper. undertones of garden mint come to the fore alongside dark treacle and charred oak.
Finish: A spicy finish with lasting citrus fruit and mixed nuts.
