    Concerns LS31063 v 17.5.22 - bottle not yet listed.
    Haven't had a revival in the glass for a long time. Now the 2022 bottle is freshly opened. But what I have in my nose here is not quite what I think it is remembered for, even for the 2018 and later batches. Sweet as remembered, but very overripe fruit and possibly even a hint of sulphur, neither matchstick nor gum, but a little overcooked vegetables.
    In the mouth it then comes closer to the old bottlings, but in my opinion a little "thinner", ie a slightly lower intensity. Still a delicious malt, but no longer an 89/90 point whisky like in 2014/15. And unfortunately not as high as in 2018/19.

    Unfortunately, the difference to the old revival is huge. No more polish, leather or tobacco notes that I loved about the old one. More cocoa/chocolate, but less dried fruit. Form me an American oak to taste. Overall I find less fruit. I find it less complex. But still very good. Balanced and mature. The finish then has very nice nutty sherry aromas.

    Recommended for under €70 at today's prices.

    Gets better after some time in the opened bottle. I like the finish best.
