    In the nose at first a pleasant wine must followed by toffee and a very light rosemary in the background. Taste a bit nutty, sherry, “humid” dark oak. Finish not lasting as expected.

    Serge says:

    Colour: gold. Nose: definitely old style, even kind
    of antique, starting on roasted nuts, caramelised
    cereals and Seville oranges but soon to get much
    waxier, flintier and even leathery, rather ‘old
    Highlands’ in style. Some cooked ham and whiffs
    of beef stock and old walnuts that hint at sherry.
    It’s complex yet rather delicate globally,
    kind of old style once again. Just a little gunpowder.
    Mouth: the unusual beefiness strikes first, as well
    as notes of orange zests and quite some bitter chocolate.
    Goes on with kind of a waxy fruitiness, lemon zests,
    liquorice, rosehip tea and just tiny wee hints of
    cardboard and bitter wood. A wee smokiness too.
    Finish: medium long, a little more on malt and smoky
    toffee. Marmalade too. Comments: an old Highlander
    in velvet gloves. It’s very good. SGP:452
    - 86 points.

    I liked aroma a lot. But without water for sure - it spoiled everything this time. Complex malt, needs some time and attention. Not the one to take while chatting with friends.
    • Nose
      Honey with hints of liquorice. Ripe pears with some lemon, significant notes of orange peel and notes of cacao. Was strong alcohol notes at the beginning. After a while some interesting tones of vanilla with Riesling wine emerges. Water is not needed there - just spoiled the aroma.
    • Taste
      Oily, rich malt. Lots of fruits. Pears are complemented by some peanuts. Some hints of liquorice, cinnamon, almonds and wax. Leather and damp wool.
    • Finish
      Spicy, not so long with toffee and coffee, maybe bitter chocolate.
