    Great malt! great vintage! I could think of it
    drink firmly. Echo here isn't as long as the first one, however
    clear enough. this is a dangerous substance - you have one of it
    Bottle, you drink it all the time. Like a dessert. This evening
    speaks the concentrated experience and everyone can still learn something.
    Note: “You'd better take a box of it. A bottle drew briskly
    • Nose
      OBF, ripe fruits, ripe apples (but in awesome, not like
      otherwise with young whiskys), fruit compote, nice cognac nose and
      Menthol, "Mr. Knopfer sings wonderfully". Nice, rich herbal nose.
      One noted very attentively: “It's not like the first one at all
      dissimilar. ”Which immediately with the full experience“ was the first
      more intense in the nose ”is acknowledged. Sanostol or Wick VapoRub.
      The main thing is a pharmacy.

      Body: also soft and oily
    • Taste
      Someone worked out fruit candy, caramel, Auf
      the tongue very tender, gentle, OBF, dusty, dry, pepper comes out very much
      late. not as sticky as the 1, plastic and wet cardboard box.
    • Finish
      Coffee and chocolate. Is that called cappuccino ?! The Odin
      now gets everything out and throws in the group: "Dusty, real, as if
      you take a breath in a very old living room and there is still an old one
      Sherry in the glass. “Well done, we others say! Odin cheers and rejoices

    Cool part.
    • Nose
      Light amber

      But it starts nice and tight. Then an artificial wood note is added immediately. Something like pine needle oil. Moss and dry leaves. In the background I find dried herbs and dried fruit.
      With a little time in the glass, a sweet white wine note prevails. But there is also a sour counterplay. Lime and green grapes. A slightly fresh note moves through the glass again and again. Something like anise. The colleague is getting dustier and more dusty. Sawdust and a little coolant.

      The empty glass smells of dry vanilla and flowery.
    • Taste
      Very gentle start. Then comes a pleasant seasoning and it spreads creamy. A dusty, dry undertone remains with it. With the second sip, sweetened dried fruit and a lot of nutty bitterness, in the form of walnut. Wood is now getting stronger and bringing with it drought. Is developing more towards herbal tea. This artificial softwood aroma also accompanies the taste. Just like this dry aroma of leaves.
    • Finish
      Rather long. Pleasant flavor and dry wood. There's a dusty sweetness behind it somewhere. It ends with a creamy bitterness for a long time.
