Cask 1369 – 46.6%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Light wood smoke, apricot jam, dried papaya, honey, waxed leather, smoked toasted almonds, cardamom.
Palate: Gooseberries, apricots, hints of pineapple, cake dough, mixed mild spices and wood tannins.
Finish: Very long, dry and fruity with a whiff of smoke
Overall: Some magnificent fruity aromas have developed over the decades but also the wood has had a significant influence. The driness is quite pronounced and kept just in check by the rich primary flavours.
Rating: 91/100 – Price tag undisclosed but likely substantial.
