Nose: Sour, acerbic, musty, wood.
Flavour: Citrus, wood, salty, a little spicy, slightly bitter.
Body: Oily, full, round, gentle, coherent, slightly dry, pleasant long smooth finish.
Comments: Exactly what you'd expect from a 35 year old whisky. Very distinguished but lacks a little personality due to the time it spend in the cask.
