SMWS 39.101 - "Sophisticated adult sweetness"

23 years old, distilled 29th October 1990, refill ex-bourbon hogshead, 46.9% abv, 243 bottles
A big, woody nose - polished oak, ginger, orange blossom and apricots. The body (which is quite thin and watery) brings dried fruits - sultanas - and more oak. The finish has camphor wood and raisins, with a hint of dark chocolate.
After water (which provides compact, lengthy whorls) the nose is less oak and more camphor wood, with sultanas and cardamom. The body has a little more toffee and nuttiness, then orange peel and dark chocolate on the finish.
