Nose:

Beautiful and delicate notes approach you when you bring your nose to the glass. I find myself thinking of dried apricots covered in a thin layer of powdered sugar. Slightly reminiscent of Turkish Delight. Since we’re dealing with such an old dram it’s worth it to give it a bit of time in the glass, as the nose evolves from the soft fruity notes into more floral notes like lavender and lilies of the valley. But the grain is still noticeable as well, as mild notes of porridge come drifting by. I can keep on discovering layers and new notes on this nose, but what stands out the most is that every note that I find seems to be perfectly balanced and integrated into the dram. Joyous!

Palate:

One thing I always love in a whisky is when it evolves. When nose, palate and finish each take you by surprise and take you on a wonderful journey. And this is one such dram. Where the nose was complex yet delicate, the palate is complex and robust. Vanilla immediately stands out, but the influence of the woods tannins over the years is noticeable as well. Without it becoming overpowering. There’s pepper, liqourice root, and aniseed. Paired with oatmeal, white wine, and roasted chestnuts. Lovely!

Finish:

The finish is long. And it’s here I truly notice the fact that this is still a cask strength whisky. Time may have dropped the ABV down a fair margin, but the fact that no water was added explains the complexity and longevity of the flavours in this dram. And once again it’s vastly different from nose and palate. There’s caramel candied apple, a dusting of nutmeg and just a hint of white chocolate covered Oreo’s. I love those… this is a finish to truly savour!
