Nose of varied fruits, noticeable sherry aspects, and hazelnuts.  The palate is quite sweet and fruity, mouth-coating and oily, with citrus and a neat spice combination. Finish is lengthy with some heat.  The malt improves as the glass sits, with complexity broadening, particularly in the revelation of more spices.  Addictive, sweet -- very sweet -- yet that sweetness is well balanced with the wood, which shows itself most in the mildly tannic finish.  Good and tasty and yummy.  Overall, my impression is "cotton candy fruit and caramel mild spice delight."  I really love the older whiskies from this distillery.

(Another sample from Luc Timmermans' excellent site, www.whiskysamples.eu.  This is a fantastic way to try rare malts without having to resort to dire circumstances and massive cash outlays.  I wish I could pretend this bottle was mine, but hey, gotta stay honest).
