    Colour: Old gold-amber.
    Nose: Rich, thick, on fruity notes of orange,
    tangerine, papaya, passion fruits, with some blackcurrant and peat
    smoke.
    Taste: Rich, thick, fruity, slightly tannic, bold, almost syrupy,
    oaky, on stewed fruits, blackcurrant and some exotic fruits. Complex, and
    diluted, some citrus notes (pink grapefruit) are released. The finish is long to
    very long, with the same notes as on the palate.
    General Impression: A
    beautiful old whisky, rich, intense, complex and with only faint tannic notes.
    Very well done.

    Tasting Notes:

    To The Eye: Deep bronze

    To The Nose: Initial aromas of light, fresh eucalyptus balanced with a butterscotch and treacle sweetness. Add a splash of pure mineral water to release hints of ripe soft fruit and fresh green apples.

    To The Tongue: On the palate, mild mint combines with sweet light treacle and dark chocolate.

    To The End: The finish is silky smooth, complex and delicious.

  4. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Wow, I saw this in New York at The Whisky Place and was fascinated by the display and can only dream of what it must taste like. Someday when I have 5500$ to blow on Scotch, that`s the day I open the bottle and drink it with my brother the day he gets married or a first child. Something life changing or spectacular for sure!
