Comparison with the 22-year-old 105 (WID: 114761)
Immediately after pouring out, the young 105 is much more present and louder in the nose. As expected, the 22yo is more reserved, dignified and also more confident. The fruits of 10yo / NAS are fresher there and also look a little artificial. So go towards the red wine gum. The 22yo is much more balanced there. The fruits are rather raisins and figs with nice wood notes. I would probably not have typed 60% blindly for both. The alcohol is very well integrated.
The alcohol is now noticeable in the mouth. But that is also perfectly fine for 60%. Otherwise pretty much the same impression as in the nose. The 22yo is now a bit more woody than in the aroma. A bit of tobacco also comes through and maybe some floral notes. The 10yo / NAS again shows its slightly artificial fruit. Now there is also some oak.
The young 105er in particular benefits from water. As a result, the fruits no longer look so artificial. The 22yo doesn't necessarily need water, but it makes it a little more pleasant.
I did not like the 10yo / NAS because it came across a bit artificial and without depth. I remembered it better.
The 22yo is a delicious malt. Roughly speaking, towards the standard 25yo with more power. But you definitely don't need a bottle of it.
