N: What a nose! Its lush, sweet and soft. Its just filled with candied fruity goodness that tells you this was pulled out the cask at the best time. Hay, wood, white peppers and loads of tropical fruits. I found myself just nosing this.
P: Velvety smooth texture. The fruits continue. White peaches and grapes galore along with a myriad of other fresh cut fruits. Grassy and woody notes hang out in the background and dries this out a bit.
F: Lingers with citrus tart.
This fruity profile is something I tend to get in older whiskies from the mid 70's and earlier. Maybe the distillate was made differently or maybe the wood has changed over the decades. Its hard this find this kind of profile with newer stock. Its sweet and fruity; soft and mellow. But everything plays well and it doesn't try too hard to impress.
