Nose : Plums, pears, white peaches, all slightly tart. There's a candily-like/sweet perfume too. Loukoum ? With time, winey, spicy and smoky.

Mouth : Strong, yellow fruits, grapes, spices, some herbal notes. Liquory.

Finish : Long, fruity, spicy and drying with time.


Very good but not my favorite profile.

[December, 2013]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  I took no detailed notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

This is a great example of Seventies old skool style whisky! This baby hits all the marks, extremely well balanced, faboulous stuff. I could nose this forever! 

Still available in store, sets you back serious money, but she's worth it.
