A very old grain whisky, enhanced by its long maturation in refill sherry casks. At the nose it’s darkly perfumed with notes of mint, camphor, a strong impression of old books and even a hint of smokiness. At the palate the sweetness of the cereals and the vanilla notes imparted by the long maturation are immediately evident, but soon the aromatic and slightly bitter notes of mint, liquorice, gentian root and old leather-bound books nicely complement it. Towards the finish, it’s an impressive crescendo of tannins from the oak: peppery and slightly astringent, but with the creamy cereal sweetness still lingering in the background to provide an intriguing tapestry.
