  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    These ‘new’ GM bottlings are rather priced up unfortunately. This is withholding me to buy them in lot’s of occasions. But then off course, exceptions are everywhere and I have to say this is one of them. Exceptionally well matured.
    • Nose
      Candystore! Sweet but well matured and with a savory layer underneath. Gummy bears and winegums. A subtle and great integrated layer of peat. I get a sensation of ship rope which, in my opinion, is responsible for that typical flavor of older peated whisky.
    • Taste
      It’s very soft and gentle! Almost shy initially. After that a slowmotion explosion of dried herbs, cinnamon powder, paprika powder, cigarette tobacco and earthy, sweet peat. Finally it builds up to a thick, syrupy and mouth coating body. Truly lovely stuff!
    • Finish
      The long and delicate finish is rather mineral like and gives again dried herbs, subtle peat and also a sensation of wet tobacco.

      This is a whisky you need to dive into and concentrate. Definitely not a beginners dram but very rewarding when you sit down and take your time with it! Simply lovely how the peat developed after such a long time. Despite of the price I would give this a serious buy recommendation.

    Impression after three drams: A dram to take your time with: it develops very well and has a lot of depth to offer. It has a unique light 'floral' type of peat, and a full and rich taste beyond the more subtle nose.
