Tasting Notes
Craig DanielsThis has been in my cupboard in a box for nearly 20 years. I don't recall the last time I tried it but it must have been around 1997. Nose: Honey and must, some straw, a faint hint of sweet sherry and a whiff of smoke. Palate: Bit thin and a bit dusty, some watery honey and some leather and some bandages and bandaids. Finish: some white rubber (Staedler/Pelikan)erasers and some slightly burnt honeycomb. Comment: I have no idea where my notes for this whisky are from 1997 but my score would be the same. The white eraser note and the burnt notes aren't great, but I can't say that this is OBE or heat strike.
