1973-2003 Limited Edition 29yo
1987-2012 SR 25yo
Something different comes from 1989-2015 SR 25yo - it was produced in the time where UD had replaced the traditional Worm Tubs by others and this is noticeable in the style. 1989 does not come close to the abundance and intensity of its predecessors, but was clearly expensive to release.
According to Diageo, the 30yo from 2019 is also from the short period without the 1989 Worm Tubs and you can tell it too - too bad.
The Worm Tubs were restored in 1995;)
I had half a dram - but a full little glass for the nose - my experience tells me that a Snifter would have harmed here rather with its large volume and the shy malt.
I think the whisky is delicious - but extremely overpriced - I would grudgingly make € 250 loose - there I see the offered in comparison including 20% Fanboybonus. The score with PLV / PGV would be maximum at 86 points.
even lukewarm rather restrained - round and mature but not as excellent as I would expect for the price - also a bit more extroversion (intensity) must be there for me in the price range
great flavors but their concentration and presence are far too restrained - the points are there for the flavors - he seems a little "diluted"
