Tannins and thick oak juice in the taste. Dates, dates and heavy overripe plums. The finish is long and the whisky seems so thick, you would think you could cut it in slices. The oak takes over a bit with the sweetness from the dried fruits.
A great dram, but to be honest, I much more prefer the family casks between 20 and 30 years old. There, I find the flavours from the oak and the previous content to be in perfect balance. Here it seems like the oak has become a bit too dominant. I will give this 88/100 (22/22/22/22).
