What they say:

Distilled in 1995 – Bottled 2013 – Region: Speyside – Cask: Hogshead – Number of Bottles: 348

What I say:

Sampled during Milroy’s of Soho Tweet Tasting 2

Nose:

more rounded and fruitier [peach/orange?], higher ABV? I get a little acetone (nail polish remover) burn on the nose, but under it a little wood

Palate:

spicier, more wood,  – I suspect blend again but more/older malt?

Finish:

something dry/rubbery on the finish

Overall:

getting better, more complex, strange finish and doesn’t go well with water!
