  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Maybe not a complete surprise that this is not my favourite of the series, as the alcohol percentage should normally be much higher, even after more than a quarter century of maturation.
    • Nose
      This has a slight dirty edge to it. Quite meaty, with stewed fruits, but also honey, caramel, wax and coconut shavings. Finally a hint of milk chocolate, soma raisins and ginger.
    • Taste
      Sweet, dry and with a subtle sourness. Cherry syrup at first, then oak shavings, and spices (nutmeg and ginger mainly). Finally some dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      A lingering dryness, and after a while some stewed apples.
