Light, a little floral, some toffee notes but not heavy toffee, a little butterscotch , caramel, some white fruits coming through after a minute or so but then a few chemical notes emerge.
I detected no peat on the nose but it is here in abundance, mixing nicely with the sherry and some stewed fruit, it is quite drying in the aftertaste.
There is a little treacle in the mix and then a blast of ginger spice, and finally a little classic old HP orange comes in, very good balance on show here.
Good medium length, sweetness diminshing and as on the note a slight metallic chemical note emerges but , it does not detract or lower the score for me,
An excellent whisky, just as good as the 1967 43 year cask 6282 John Scotts.
Pour me a glass please.
