    What a beautiful label! That’s the signature of Maltbarn’s bottling – photos taken by photographer. Let’s see is the bottle beautiful enough to impress us!

      Alcohol is so soft and well integrated. Hey! Who poured honey water into my whisky? It’s just sweet, but not suger-sweet. A piece of cake is hidden in my glass. Is there some raisin? Hmm… It should be the candied dates instead. Wait for other 5mins, some white flowers are getting out from the glass.

      Not an oily one, but the alcohol is just perfect. Here we have some candied nut at first. Of course, there are some honey next to it. Not a sherry monster, but you can find some modern sherry in this. Citric! We can usually find it from the Glenrothes, including this. Wait, the candied nut turns into a hint of apricot kernel!

      Medium. The nut is gone and the citric stayed. A little bit simple, but that’s fine.

    Dessert creamy nose, slightly dried fruit. 22
    The taste is rich, dense, also dried fruit. 22
    The aftertaste is soft, long, with a light peppercorn. 22
    Very balanced, rich, but drinkable. Feels much older
