Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Very characterful – lots going on. Rich aromas of toffee apple and malt, then stewed fruits (cherries) and bananas in custard. There’s a lovely freshness, though – hint of grassiness and some refreshing lemon-oil notes, then more mature notes of leather, cigar box and coffee.
Palate: Rich, waxy tropical-fruit note, accompanied by dark chocolate and leather-bound books. Big, woody spices from the oak make their presence felt, too. A weighty whisky, but no single elements dominates – bottled at the right time before the wood influence takes over.
Finish: The rich fruitiness persists, matched by the spicy oak.

Certainly, a wee nip of the Buckie Road, as it's locally known. Sadly, this supreme dram now sits as an empty bottle on my shelf of greats; a reminder of great times passed. Rich & complex on the nose, tangy - almost orangy. A little on the palete reveals warm & lush earthy notes and the finish was lip-smacking & very long - I furnished the father in law with a few generous drams and he noted he could still taste it the next morning. I plan on buying a 2nd bottle now - but this one I will guard jealously.
