An excellent mole, a huge leap in comparison with the 18-year-old, the nail of the program is certainly an aroma, lively, changeable, playing many colors, the taste can not boast such a wide range of components, but surprisingly saturated and powerful, the aftertaste closes, smoothes and prepares the background for the next sip. Very well, after the official 12th and 18th years of the samples of extreme smoothening, boredom and dreary sluggishness of whisky that appeared for me, this is just a powerful rehabilitative breath of fresh air, returning interest to the distillery.
Floral, herbaceous, lemonade, in the background light minerality alternating with lacquer-acetone notes, peel of green apples, wax, noble wood, cream tones, slightly burnt caramel, toffee, fondant, the aroma is complex, develops and changes with time, at first it seems very subtle, you have to look for and track down the tones and shades, but then it changes, opens up to the fullest, turning to tasting something then the other side and it is necessary to tell him that he has something to show us.
Oak with red oranges, red pepper, sweet syrup, creamy notes. Surprisingly powerful and rich for a commercial fortress, it feels about 50, and from above.
Continuation of taste, smoothed, light ginger burning, crusts of oranges, grapefruits, burnt sugar, apple compote, bitter young bark.
