Tasting notes: David Broom from whiskymag.com
Nose: Decent intensity with vegetal (wet banana leaf)/green plum notes. Tropical notes mixed with dry hay and flowers. Hint of toffee and crisp oak. Slightly acidic, yet sweet.
Palate: Direct with decent grip. Finer in character than the 12 with similar levels of sweetness but this has more toastiness and better length. Silky.
Finish: This is best neat. Shows a clean progression of flavours.
