From Serge Valentin (whiskyfun.com)
Nose: a typical vegetal and leafy sherry, which I find a little too leathery after the 12. Quite some sour dough again. I think I enjoyed the nose of the 12 better.
Palate: Bitter oranges, raisins, walnuts, Christmas cake, these notes of kirsch and damson plums again, a touch of honey. It is a wee tad weakish indeed, I’d say bottling this high quality whisky at 43% would have been smarter.
Finish: medium long, lovely, on oranges and chocolate, with a hint of leather again. 82 points
