    In direct comparison to 1990/2005 (very fruity) this shows more caramel, honey and dry oak.

  5. pianoman scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Dry rosé wine, slightly fruity. Some sand, dry earth, wild herbs.

      Fruity with a light spiciness. Nutty and dry.

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I am very positively surprised, of both, I remembered more like "lala", wrongly. "Qualitatively" I would not make any difference, in 1992 I personally have more.
    1992 = Restschluck from a bottle open about 1 year, 1997 = fresh.
    • Nose
      Direct comparison 1992/2010 vs. 1997/2014:
      both fruity sweet, fairly straightforward and open, you do not have to look far for flavor
      1992: a Haribo-Bärchen-touch, quite "juicy, red / black berries, cherries, with a pinch of cinnamon
      1997: rather light fruits (compote), peach, apricot, pear, creamy, but also a slightly dry wood color
    • Taste
      there are again the gummy bears, 1992 red & orange (strawberry, raspberry), 1997 yellow and white (pineapple, pear, a little citrus), with two creamy sweetness, caramel, milk chocolate, wood / bitterness only very subtle, 1997 something spicy / spicy comes
    • Finish
      medium long, sweet, slightly spicy, strangely comes here in 1997 a bit milder
