- Loved the nose, and while the palate is not exactly elegant, not even after 23 years of aging, you shouldn't let that scare you away. This is highly quaffable stuff!
Fresh, fruity and vibrant. There's apricots and ripe strawberries here, as well as raspberries. Some soft notes of vanilla custard, accompanied by even softer notes of honey. Very enjoyable.
More youthful and robust, with some roasted peanuts and an array of spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, and even a little ginger. It does have soft notes of citrus, raspberry and honey, although they are part of the minority here.
Lingering spices and hints of raspberry.
- Enthusiasm 3/5
Whiskey n ° 1602
Straight and nutty. Rather round, but a bit smooth. Honey is growing in size.
Fluid, round and spicy. The fruits I miss cruelly (but it's just my personal taste)
Coherent with the mouth, all in intensity.
- A pretty Blend of 23 years that has very little defect. It could be blamed for being a little dry and bitter on the end but overall the freshness of the fruits takes over. It has a Clynelish side even if there is very little chance that this distillery is part of this blended malt.
The nose is very low despite the 53.6%. There are mainly notes of fresh fruit (apricot, melon and raspberry), precious woods and polish. After a few moments is added to these notes some tears of honey and vanilla.
Light attack on the first approach but rising crescendo in the middle of the mouth on spices (pepper), vanilla and fresh fruit. The wood mixes harmoniously with the fruits. Nice freshness in the mouth.
Beautiful length on wax, precious wood and spices. A slight woody bitterness also marks this final of its borrowing.
