Ultimate Beverage Challenge 98 points - (UB Collection,Chairman’s Trophy,Tried & True Award)- Deep ginger color. Truckloads of baking spices, including allspice, clove, toasted cereal in aroma. Toasty, slightly saline flavor that’s intensely grainy, breakfast cereal-like. A bona fide pure pot still classic. (Mar 2015)

(MA92) This new 15 year old expression is more muscular (bottling at 46% and not chill filtering certainly helps), but there are trade-offs. Itís a bit closed on the nose (like a great Bordeaux wine thatís too young). I do enjoy the silky/oily texture, the bold resinous oak spice grip on the finish, and the rich nutty toffee, fig, black raspberry, chocolaty, chewy nougat throughout the palate.
