From the archives. ''Sweet sherry and light fruitiness over smoke. The only distillery to have been run for many years by a woman. Dark, red-gold and beaded, this whisky has been sixteen years in, unusually, a puncheon. It smells of malt, smoke, wood, antisepic. With water there is sweet sherry and a light fruitiness over smoke. The taste starts sweet and tarry and then quickly becomes dry and spicy, like a liquorice root. The finish is very dry and strong. Recommended for yogis or members of contemplative orders.'' The original price for this bottle in 1995 was £47.
