    For me the best balance between distillery character and barrel storage so far, clearly. better than the 25-year-old, but comparable to the 18-year-old

      Fruit compote, woodruff, cool freshness (lemon?), Dried fruit (plum), vanilla
    • Taste

      At first rather dry and spicy, then very nice structure of a balanced fruity sweetness with oranges, plums, vanilla
    • Finish

      Long, getting drier

    The first "old" whisky I bought and tried, and it didn´t dissapoint. Very strong sherry and fruit notes, with slight nutty and citrus notes. The taste is a full body with fruit, spices and smoke. The aftertaste lasts long, is slightly smoky with a hint of chocolate. I recommend it to anyone who doesn´t want to spend a lot of money on a long aged whisky.

    The nose was more impressive than the palate:
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fruit. Sweet. Honey. Barley.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Some sweetness. Pepper. A tad bitter.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Ok. Medium long. Bitterish.
