    Spring flower-apple release.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The petals of a lime tree, an apple tree, and the yellow apple itself. Easy, nksaotrya on a high fortress. The vanilla is barely noticeable.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The taste is sweet, such an apple sprinkled with powdered sugar, light honey, birch petals and birch juice.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sweet, tart, bright and long aftertaste.

    Surprisingly good Glen Scotia from the old days. Actually this Glen Scotia is an OB which was - according to the magnificent book of Immanuel Dron - bottled in the late 1980's. So the whisky has been distilled in the mid-1970's.
    • Nose
      Lots of flowery notes at first; rhododendrons, heather and violets. Cut grass as well. Honey-lavender. Later on citrus fruit of kiwis, gooseberries and lemon. White grapes. Even hints of vanilla yoghurt.
    • Taste
      Nice fruity punch of pineapple, lemon zest and orange-rind. Tangerines. Later on fresh figs and pear-drops. Some barley sugar and fresh cedar wood at the background. Not overly complex but very enjoyable.
    • Finish
      Warm and lingering. The fruity sweetness remains for a long time. Ginger and a little clove. Apple mint at the end. Well balanced whisky.

    Very strange dram. Many shortcomings create a balanced harmony. Quite an experience to enjoy
    • Nose
      Unriped pear, sumpur but not peated
    • Taste
      Dry and sweet. Similar to Grappa, sweetness generated  not by sweet fruits but from distiller process
    • Finish
      Long with a nice unriped aftertaste
