This classic was distilled in 1957, and remains vibrant more than 3 decades after bottling! The nose is spicy and aromatic with hazelnut, cinnamon, allspice, toasted oak, and a hint of smokiness. The taste is thick, mouth-coating, and spicy with a great cinnamon note that fades to reveal licorice and orange peel. The finish is lingering times 3 — with cinnamon, allspice, and touches of oak that seem to go on forever. An outstanding whisky!
