My sort of whisky.
Bit how does it compare to the 1969 RM and the best Lochy I have tasted the 65 SV Silent stills, we will see :)
An old, fragile, slightly grumbly sherry profile at first. It almost teases your nose. It's a little sappy with plenty of stewed fruit like orange, peach, mango and a little apricot note mixed in with some subtle peat. There are also note of stroopwafel (Dutch Waffle) with hints of wood varnish.
Finally old books
There is a lot going on here.
A load of spice up front and a big wave of peat washes across your tongue with the fruit following behind. Its vibrant but also quite light, as the nose suggested it is a fragile whisky.
These are the sort of whiskies I really like.
The fruit seems to grow, as does the spice but then a really lovely orange note but a sweet orange note almost like a liqueur.
It is almost like you have had the best mouthwash in the world, this really does leave your palate feeling fresh.
Long finish, remaining sweet & fruity with a sweet peat edge to it
