    A big disappointment for me. I used to drink the 15 year old version before and it was a very nice, well-balanced version. I promised myself a lot after tasting her 18-year-old "sister". Unfortunately, a big disappointment. The bitterness in the final finish is, for my senses, unacceptable.

      delicate, fruity, apples, raisins, vanilla, a bit of cigarette smoke
    • Taste
      78 78
      creamy, sweet, mint, white pepper, and hay
    • Finish
      77 77
      short, quite peppery, spicy and bitter ending

    If you leave out the age you have a nice fruity Speysider with a nice oak contrast in the finish. Would be even better with a few percentage points more alcohol.
    • Nose
      First juicy, sweet and sour apples and barley sugar. In the background oak, herbs and wax. Overall fruity, balanced and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Soft and oily on the tongue and first sweet, then gentle spices and again wax. Easy to drink, but unfortunately a little too gentle.
    • Finish
      After a short fruitiness and seasoning, the oak shows a bit of bitterness, plus a little hazelnut.

    Pleasant aroma.
    He looks ripe, round, elegant.
    Barrel notes, a little vanilla.

    Very mild, it almost tastes like it does not even have 40%.
    Not quite as spicy as the 12er, but not cute either.
    Somewhat balanced.
    Grapes, wood, chocolaty.

    Not bad...
