[46.0%・21 Years Old・Bottled Circa. 2013-2015・Official Bottling・General Release]
Absolutely lovely aroma. Refreshing citrus spices leading way, followed closely by creamy vanilla and sweet cocoa powder with a touch of sea breeze. Beautiful oaky notes in the backend charred to perfection. Absolutely on point.
Palate & Finish:
Notes of vanilla sweetness and lemon jam hit first upon the first sip, then the delicate spices start to dance playfully on your tastebuds, a sprinkle of sea salt to support the melody.
A slightly peppery finish with a touch of wood bitterness and smoke to balance the sweetness on the palate. Not a kick to the face but rather a bite on the lip by an absolute gorgeous. Don’t ever change.
A.K.A. “The Old Sport”
This is probably one of my favourite staple drams to have at home.
