  1. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    producer`s tasting notes:

    A very rich, dark whisky which reflects almost no light through the bottle.

    Strong, rich tannins are immediately present on the nose. However, you will also experience lots of sherry, rich stewed coffee, a fresh bag of liquorice... so many different aromas as this delightful whisky is released into the air. After about 20 minutes, you might even sense Macademia nuts.

    This is a very big, heavy whisky - rich in alcohol-soaked fruit. Almost bitter to begin with, then a delicate sweetness present. A strong double-espresso immediately comes to mind when drinking this, not only the colour but also the rich flavours.

    It has a bitter, dark chocolate aftertaste, present for a very long time. In short, a fantastic whisky - over 50 years old and still above 46%. A great treat. Bottled 2008.
