    Always really liked the design of the labels and this one is no exception. Seeing that this was 27 years old, I would have expected this to be a rounded and gentle malt, but I was in for a surprise.

    On the nose, full blown citrus bomb. Strong notes of lemon, orange in the foreground. Some notes of fresh grass can also be detected in the background. Am I nosing some sort of fruit punch?

    On the palate, more fruits! Loads of cirtus and lemonade. The sweetness and sourness in this almost tastes artificial. Some sort of packaged fruit juice. An extremely refreshing palate, something akin to sparkling water with lemon. The oak influence can also be detected in this (and rightfully so since this is indeed a well-aged bottling). It was quite interesting to see how the younger notes (fruit bomb) and older notes (wood character) interact with each other here. An interesting experience, but I cannot say that I particularly like it in this case.

    The finish is medium to long and extremely clean. Perhaps because of the result of its relatively mellow abv. Nonetheless, citrus and pepper are present in the finish.

    This was an intriguing one. It tastes younger (12-15 year old) and has a powerful body but also contains the maturity of a well-aged whisky. A polarising malt to say the least!
