    Even if I rate far below average, I have to say that it was benevolent. Unfortunately, a disappointment!
    • Nose
      66 66
      Despite its 24y, the first impression seems quite sprightly on the nose, in fact it is very similar to the NewMake. This is followed by fresh bright fruits, such as mirabelle & peach, which are replaced by fine herbs. The nose promises little depth ...
    • Taste
      73 73
      Here you notice a bit of maturity, but not the promised 24 years ... it seems to have been a rather inactive barrel. Unfortunately, I also find clear NewMake notes here, metallic & unbalanced. Light vanilla rolls over the tongue without becoming sweet. Slightly light fruit and light fennel notes can be seen. The finish is surprisingly long, but unfortunately not pleasant.
    • Finish
      70 70
      Medium-length metallic finish, unfortunately too snappy.

    If he had not got that dirty touch - if I was 90+, you might also like it, or interpret it as a wax or call it a character - it bothers me a bit - otherwise he is super clean and tasty, intense and well balanced
    • Nose
      89 89
      extremely buttery oily - orange full - fruit and orange oil, grapefruit stakes, bay leaf, olive oil, sour apple slices, fresh strawberries, ground lemon drop, mint, lavender, sage, cucumber, complex unobtrusive greenwood flavors, fresh herbs,
    • Taste
      87 87
      intense fruity - citrus, yellow overripe melon a hint of strawberry, sweet and oily dense, yeast dough, vanilla, roasted oak, peanuts
      but there is also something dirty - old engine oil, metal chips
    • Finish
      87 87
      a little bit dirtier - slight bitterness - strawberries

    Ralfy review 794: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juklh_T5y4w (93/100).

    "It's almost like a very elegant, floral Lowland single malt in its style. It is hugely complex."

    Cadenhead's tasting notes

    Nose: Beeswax, raisins, faint cloves, salami and brandy snaps. A really good nose to this dram
    Palate: Gingerbread, butter and strawberry jam. Mandarin, peaches and butterscotch. Balance is the order of the day with this palate.
    Finish: Toffee and dark fruits give way to gentle warming spices. A really good enjoyable speyside whisky I think anyone should add to a collection.
