- A really great ol' one. Handles water very well, develops long. They have really hit the spot with these old 72's.
A powerful bittersweet juicy red apple, appleseeds, butterscotch, dark coffee, dark chocolate, delicious herbal liquer (with the orange peel and chestnut), liquorice, ammonium chloride.
Toasted indian sugar, the coating of roasted apple-pie, The apple dominates, then toffee and fudge, mocha, raspberry, dried date, blackcurrant and blackcurrant leaf. Sweetly and lusciously round while developed.
Sweetish, very long and bittersweet apply.

- A very beautiful Glendronach, a pity that we find this astringency on the final, otherwise it would have been perfect.
Sherry, a lot of sherry, married to precious wood and tangerine. Alcohol vapors come, however, tickling your nostrils. Leave him time. As the alcohol evaporates, there is balsamic vinegar, very light rubbery notes, a touch of charcoal smoke, then exotic fruits (guava, papaya) whose aromas initially weak amplify until 'to occupy the front of the stage. It's melted, sweet and very pleasant.
In the extension of the nose. She does not lack power but we could have wished a little more lively. In any case, it still has exotic notes, but more on dried fruit than fresh this time. The woody tumbles in the middle of the mouth and elbows with the fruits without managing to hide them. Fresh, spicy notes of clove finish the party. Alcohol is perfectly integrated.
Of medium length, it is slightly astringent and develops on the wood, the clove leaving a pleasant freshness in mouth.
