Nose: Incongruously, very fresh. Fudge with vanilla essence and pistachio nuts.
Palate: Silky. Fresh, appetising. Sweet but not cloying. Light, fresh, delicate, notes of orange-blossom honey.
Finish: Very gentle acidity gives balancing dryness.
Comment: Delicious whisky, of true sophistication and style. Tasted blindfold, it seems a perfect whisky for today, not an evocation of the past. I would re-package it as 2041. 95 points.
