[55.1%・13 Years Old・Distilled in 1980・Bottled in 1993・Cadenhead’s Bottling・Limited Release]
Quite untamed but malty, sharp and piercing before a rather rich toffee note develops, slightly metallic with notes of green mangos and caramelised candied peanuts.
Palate & Finish:
Condensed barbecued pineapple caramelisation, honey churned with citrus pineapple chutney, lychees on the mid palate.
A white tea dryness in the finish with hints of white peaches and zesty mandarin jelly.
A colourful citrus number, not without faults though with its struggle to attain balance within to age and strength perimeters..
