although it may be a tad to expensive for that (65 EUR is not too much for a 20
year old whisky, of course, but in this case you get a little bang for your
buck). Thanks, Arnout!
The nose starts off pretty pleasant. Sweet on summer
fruit, slightly floral with quite a bit of caramel. Apple, pear, mandarin,
apricots and pineapple. Fruity fellow.
The attack is rather weak and somewhat watery and has
a very hard time fulfilling the promise of the nose. Pity. Again apples and apricots, hardly any spices and loads of oak. The tannins makes it somewhat drying, although it never turns oaky.
The finish is the best part, in which the pepper and
oak give it some punch at last.
