A lovely dark profile in the taste. Alcohol, tobacco and dried fruits. The oak is coming through nicely without being too dominant. Some spices arrives in the finish (and a little before that). Oak spices - cinnamon in particular! Just a wee sweetness compliments it all in the end.
What a lovely expression of North Port. Makes you miss their presence in today’s market. Maybe the dark profile and the high strength is a bit much to some, but for me it was spot on! I will give this 91/100 (22/23/23/23).
