    I like him a lot, he has very nice independent notes that you do not often have.
    • Nose
      Papaya, avocado, dry-tropical, lemongrass, slightly salty even, lemon zest, camphor, ginger, white pepper, licorice
    • Taste
      Lots of elegant oak, anise, ginger, fennel, camphor, white pepper, eucalyptus, green chili, dry papaya, pear, looks more Japanese than tropical
    • Finish
      Long, licorice, the eucalyptus, ginger and some pepper

    An excellent Royal Lochnagar, excellent for any whisky to be honest.
    I did not try it with water as it was so good without, there was no need. The oak is there after 37 years but it adds to the profile, bottled at the right time, approaching perfect to be honest.
    • Nose
      Unmistakingly Royal Lochnagar on Christmas cake, rum & raisin, dark chocolate, a little coffee with a little cherry mixed in.
    • Taste
      Smooth, creamy, chocolatey, hints of orange, forrest fruits at the back, black forrest gateaux.
    • Finish
      Long, satisfying.

    The best Lochnagar I ever had. Very Multi-layered and complex.
    • Nose
      Wow, what a gorgeous nose. Tropical fruit of pineapple and apricot. Fresh pencil shavings. Herbal notes of mint and camphor. Cough syrup. Polished oak. Sandal wood.
    • Taste
      Creamy with a full mouth texture. Oranges and apricot. Grapefruit. Sappy oak developing into more tanninnes. Slightly peppery. Cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long. Bitter-sweetness. Liquorice. Menthol. Well balanced.
