Words of Whisky:
Absolutely delightful and reminiscent of some of the undisclosed Speyside 1973 releases from a few years ago, albeit with some darker, more oak-y notes.
Slivers of nougat, marzipan and mint to open things up, quickly followed by oranges, mandarins and sandalwood. There's a nice waxiness that really adds to the experience. Soft tropical fruits like mango and nectarines, a whisper of chalk and a light touch of furniture polish. Elegant yet very expressive.
Great creamy texture. Or maybe even waxy, if you will. Subtle notes of mocha accompanied by tingly tannins, but also orange marmalade, lemon peel, passion fruit, bran and oatmeal cookies. A whisper of aniseed, meringues and oak spices, such as cloves, pepper and nutmeg.
Lingering notes of coffee, chocolate and ripe bananas. A touch of tobacco. And long too.
