84
Nose
Creamy and oaky with aromas of toffee, leather and raisins.
Palate
The oats in the brew really deliver smoothness. Complex dark malts are well in evidence and there are peaty-smoky hints from the whisky casks, along with an oaky tartness and a peppery warmth and a touch of zesty fruit add to the mix.
Finish
Dry, warming and bitter, with plain chocolate and coffee blending with a tartness from the oak.
Comment
Smoother, creamier and more subtle than the 12. Complex and fascinating.

87
Nose
Instantly smoked, peaty and rich.
Palate
Dark chocolate but bitterness from hops. Earthy sensation.
Finish
Hop bitterness aided by malt sweetness. Reminiscent of sucking a 70 per cent cocoa chocolate square.
Comment
Pitch black. Balanced and challenging.
