    old bourbon barrel, very tasty, but unexpectedly dry whisky, takes time, 89 is all that happened in the evening ....

  3. vredensever scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is dense, bright: oil is abundant (vegetable, creamy, and machine), a little peat and smoked products, an old wardrobe with old books (varnish, old leather), resin, rosin, citrus and apple notes (marmalade, jam) , a little vanilla, pepper, porridge with milk, grass. Super! The taste is rich: a little sweets (marmalade, jam with citrus notes), herb bitter, resin, a lot of oak, spices (vanilla, pepper, cloves, cinnamon), butter. The aftertaste is more calm, dry, smooth, fairly long. Oak in abundance, spices, herbs, tea, spices. The development of astringent oak and resinous hue. Conclusion . Very complex whisky. It requires attention and time. Stunningly consistent and coalesced. Slightly loses in the aftertaste. But still, the highest league. I did not add water. The score is 95 (n25t24f23b23).

    Nose: "Old nose"! The fruit flavors start here parallel to a plump seasoning of salt and black pepper. Tobacco leaves, leather, wet soil and foliage. Underlayed runs a delicate floral note with some fruit gum. Add honey, vanilla, caramel and lemon juice. After prolonged breathing, the fruit gum aromas dissolve.
    Taste: Creamy, fruity, dry and fresh. The salty spice transports the fresh aromas to the top. No multi-fruit bomb like the 25yo, but with an ingenious spice. Tobacco and the finest herbs are in the first place in the taste. The freshness predominantly retains the upper hand.
    Finish: Long and gentle, with spicy tobacco and leather lining. Apples and pears are in the "fruit center" - pleasantly balanced and well proportioned. Slightly dry towards the end.
    Remark: All parts are of equal quality!
    93 points (nose: 93 / taste: 93 / finish: 93)
