"The bouquet offers rich, pastry scents with deeper fragrances of old oak, figs, dates and prunes. The palate entry is creamy, engagingly nutty, acidic and fresh; the midpalate offers long, expansive tastes of oak resin, paraffin, nougat and walnut paste. Concludes elegantly, sinewy and off-dry. This whisky has it all." 96-100 pts.
