Complete, strong, balanced wine; with an intense, wide and delicate scent; extraordinarily balanced strenght and velvetness, good character; suitable for a long life. Weak wine, though elegant, fine, velvety. When a vintage is indicated on a bottle of Scotch whisky, it indicates the year in which the whisky was distilled, not necessarily the year when the barley was harvested.

Hopes were high until September brought cold and wet weather. After a short hot period in June, fine dry weather continued until harvest — some drought problems were the only worries of the vignerons.

A mild winter continued into a warm and even weather pattern in May, which got the flowering going at a steady pace. Firm and full of flavour. I have a bottle of SLV and cask 23 if anyone is interested in owning them.
