Speyside Distillery Private Cellar Milburn 1983 (20 year old) 43%

Dist: 1983 Btl: 2003/ Tasted: Feb 2005

Clean, pronounced mature showy aromas of very creamy sherried fruits and vanilla oak. Very big and aromatic with rich, oily orange fruit and an underlying earthy spirit with a developing smokiness.

Off-dry, soft, mouthfilling and very fruity with sherry wood, vanilla and dried mature fruit notes.A very smoky middle with a fleeting violet note and a long intensely coal dust finish leaving an impression of licking out a coal scuttle! – a lovely dram.
