Apart from that, a really radiant malt from the Ex-Bc. Good distillate, matured in an active cask and bottled at the perfect time. If you like something like that, I do it, you will really find nectar here. 90-91pts.
Surprisingly fresh and lively for such an old malt. Not only from the aromas, but also the alcohol is there, cools and tickles the nose. Candied lemon, lime, vanilla, physalis and gooseberry meringues.
Here, too, the malt shows no sign of old age. Very clear and expressive. In addition to the citrus fruits from the smell, there is also a pear note here, which I also found in the OA Longmorns. The association of a local, ripe pear with a green-yellowish, slightly woody skin. The barrel is also very present with wood spice and vanilla. Could possibly even tolerate a drop of water. But I don't dare and prefer to enjoy the Lemon Fizzy Candy neat in small sips.
The finish is just as strong as the smell and taste. Here again with the lemon shower candy and fine charcoal smoke.
