  2. joho did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Color: Light amber. Aroma: Coffee and butter cream, soft milk toffee, dried apricots, milkshake with vanilla ice cream, cocoa and grated walnuts. Little varnish, herbs and fruit gum. Later - a bit sharper (that is strange, usually the other way around). The heated metal with peeling paint, oil, as usual J. With water: first, a much sharper, but then, as a reward: even pleasant aroma deciduous oak in the heat. Wild flowers and grasses in the shady ravines (wormwood). liquid cherry jam, very strong decoction of oak, raisins. Not much, but each component vigorously struggle for leadership. With water: a piece of sweeter Sohar melted with lemon peel, pine nuts and kernels of chalk. Finish: Wood and astringent. Sorry, Do Oak won. Not very long and with overtones from the oil industry. Conclusion: Great Glen Garioch in the prime of his life. All right with little mistakes that it is possible to close your eyes. Waterproof up to 1: 1! 84 points.
