  1. DocF scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Fruity, bourbon barrel, old, for the hour he was standing here covered, he couldn't get out of his pocket. Polished wood, bark, tree sap. With water, air: beeswax. No smoke, dry wood. Yellow fruit in the mouth, dry wood, slightly bitter, increasingly wet bark, tree sap, earth. At the most, it removes resinous smoke. Short finish, bitter. My goodness that's bad. After the first two there was a bit of a break, after this one I drank the set up and down again, now I also have the thick apricot note with subtle smoke, that can just as easily be washed off the tongue. After long sucking, maybe passion fruit. Sending blind is no longer possible: frown:

    • Nose
      Fresh. Yellow apples, tangerine peel, some wax. Pale wood. Sour grapes, lime juice, white wine. Moist earth, clay soil, old stone cellar.
    • Taste
      Creamy, spicy. Fruit salad with honey and chopped nuts. White chocolate mousse, candied ginger. Cocoa powder.

    Fantastic dram with loads of fruit. From pears to passion fruit. Chili and pepper combine the fruits to a lovely chutney. Try it, if you get the chance. Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/11/28/speyside-1990-einmal-exklusiv-einmal-verloren/
