This is an 18 year expression (based on distilled date/bottling code) that was bottled at 46% ABV.
Nose: Very heavy yeast notes along with striking fresh, buttery dough rolled in flour. Definitely the most doughy nose I’ve ever encountered.
Palate: Dough here again taking on a sweeter profile – great full mouthfeel with heavy yeast and moldy oak.
Finish: Dries out with a salted malt and young oak.
Rating: 80/100 – Very simple, yet refreshingly different profile with the heavy dough presence.
Value for the money: I think these retailed around $50-$60, and I would pass at that price, but it’s not too bad of a price in general.
