Colour: pale gold. Nose: there’s OBE and there’s more phenolic, smoky and downright peaty notes than in the more modern distillates.There are also wackier notes, such as waxed papers and ink, but those may come from OBE. It’s also a little butyric. Mouth: OBE gone mad this time. I mean, some parts are magnificent, especially the heavy salt and such, but the cardboard and stale tea have taken over. Finish: long and very drying.
