The nose was very peppery initially, so much so that it made me sneeze! Afterwards I got loads of vanilla, honey, heather, citrusy orange and nutmeg. Very pleasant indeed
The finish was long and lingered. It was oaky with more sweet honey and overtones of dried fruit. It lasted ages in my throat and has a lovely warm, but not nippy, feeling going down
Noticeably different from the 23 year old and very satisfying. I’d recommend you try this dram especially on a chilly evening. Slainje!
