Member Ratings and Notes
The first thing I got from the nose was the sauce that usually accompanies chicken satay -- a thai peanut sauce.  There's also notable plums and caramel, with cider vinegar and... yeah, I'm pretty sure I smell pork ribs.  Really kind of an intriguing nose... and comparatively, the palate is a letdown.  Mainly mild spice and light caramel, on a background of restrained sweetness.  The finish is lengthy, and spice comes and goes in nice waves.  Oak is present in an expected amount, keeping this semi-dry while not over-oaked.  This is a single malt that doesn't really excel at anything flavor-wise, yet it remains eminently drinkable.  B/B- 
N: Fairly unimpressive initially, takes a while but then some gamey sherry and mixed nuts.
P: Smooth and very drinkable, but not nearly enough character for a whisky this old.
F: A gentle and pleasing sting and light sherry.
Enjoyable but below expectations. 
N: Nutty and spicy. Trail mix with dried brown fruit ( pears and apple) and caramel sauce.   Light vinegar lingers.
P: more brown fruit and caramel but there's a hint of smoke and lingering peat.
F: Sweet yet tart finish of green apples B/B-
