My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Rum-soaked raisins, bananas, honey, toasted nuts, toffee, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
Palate: Raisins, dried apricots, hints of grapefruit, toasted hazelnuts, caramel, candied ginger, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Medium long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: While having a superb nose, this older Doublewood version does not quite reach the quality of the almost legendary 12 year old. But go for it, if you like spicy drams.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
