Even at age 8, this retains its lean and muscular character. Lovely, complex aromas of tart plum, prune, dark cherry, Scotch whiskey, smoke, pine resin. Clean and beautifully focused in the mouth and finish. Despite its lofty alcohol, not heavy or hot but, if anything, elegant and graceful. Well made, untiring on the palate. - HK 2014-12-19
