    Floral and light with hints of Oranges.

    Quite Sharp on the tongue. But sweet all the same. Feel Oranges and honey.

    Short finish, feel the oak in the back. Bitter and unpleasant.

    All in all not one of my favourites. Struggling With Aberfeldy, the two I've tried have let me Down.

    Not complex but refined and easy to drink.

    Like many of the older Connoisseurs Choice bottlings from the mid-late 1960`s you need to spend a bit of time  to get the best from them.

    I liked this one and when I first tasted it and still do now.
    • Nose
      Honey, grapefruit, orange
    • Taste
      Spirity at first nosing and quite sharp but then then the honey kick in with a wave of sweetness. I still get the grapefruit but with hints of black currents now. With a little time it definitely softens with faint caramel notes.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly long for 40%

    • Finish
      8,3 Średniej długości z nutą ziół, cynamonu, zboża, słodu oraz karmelu z akcentem ciemnej gorzkiej czekolady.
