My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright copper
Nose: Pipe tobacco, old leather, orange marmalade, dark caramel, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves.
Palate: Bitter oranges, christmas cake, mint, sage, strong Earl Grey tea, mixed oriental spices.
Finish: Very long, dry and spicy.
Overall: The nose of this rare whisky is to die for. It is enormously complex on the palate with lots of spices and a surprising herbal element, but the wood is very well present.
Rating: 88/100 – no price information as this is a collector’s bottle
