Tasting Note:

A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt, from refill European Oak and American Oak casks filled in 1988. Just 3,372 individually bottles worldwide. Rich antique gold in colour, with good beading. On the nose there are soft hints of ripe red apple, which opens to reveal an astonishingly full, complex and vibrant combination of dried figs and raisins, damson jam, banana skin, polished leather and wood, sandalwood and muscovado sugar. Medium-bodied, on the palate it is sweet, with flavours to match the complexity of the nose. Immediate and cooling, then smooth, with salty, savoury elements right at the outset. Passing through a warming, sweet raisiny level, it begins to acquire a lovely depth, with smoothly integrated oak, cocoa and balancing black cherry tartness. Again, it’s softer with water. The finish is elegant, silky and unctuous tannins, so not over-drying, and suggestions of fruit, nuts, savoury meats and scented cellar wood.
