What they say:
Lemon grass hint of cumin, cloves and allspice, very creamy with some sweet pomegranate notes add to this interesting nose.
Lot’s of rich clotted cream with Strawberry jam and some rich lime notes, soft and rich notes mingle across the palate just like a cream tea.
Lemon sherbet note then some grass aroma opening to sweet peeled orange.
What I say:
Dram #1 from WOLS tasting 14/3 ‘Age is only a number’ kicks off with this 24 year old Miltonduff-Glenlivet Cadenhead Small Batch.
Grassy, citric, malty, oak wood, lime and lemon custard, pomegranate, sorrel,
Sweet and fruity, lychee and lime with cream, waxed lemons, rhubarb and custard sweets, musty old oak and some malty cereal notes with a waxy mouthfeel
Long oaky slightly sour and waxy
Reasonably complex but easy-drinking, lots of unusual fruit and herbal notes throughout tied together with old oaky wood.
