    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      How can a 30 year matured whisky be so extremely fruity? A flood of exotic fruits rises from my glass: mango, passion fruit, honey melon, coconut, pineapple, juicy tangerines and a hint of unripe strawberries provide a wonderful freshness. Slightly sour fruit notes (pomegranate, citrus fruits) contrast very well with the sweet, exotic fruits. In the background linger a pleasant oak flavor.
    • Taste
      Strong start with a noticeable prickle on the tip of the tongue. The Pfeffrigkeit gives way very fast to the sweet, tropical fruits. Very oily, even silky soft, is the pleasant mouthfeel. Salivation is also strongly stimulated. Mango, passion fruit, pineapple and tangerines quickly take over the flavor of the upper hand. Sweet cake, honey, vanilla and caramel underline the sweet foundation. A light nutritiousness and the first spicy oak wood notes complete the overall picture. The alcohol content of 46% is perfectly integrated and ensures an intense aroma transport. Dangerously tasty, especially in the summer.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. The exotic fruits can put a final exclamation point. A fine Nussigkeit, cloves, leather, tobacco leaves and oak spice are in the foreground. It gets a little drier with a subtle bitterness.

    Really delicious malt. I like these yellow fruits paired with the sharpness / acidity. Really something.
    • Nose
      Boy! He is fruity. But everything goes more into the yellowish / exotic. Khaki. Physalis. Mango. Apricot jam. Sea buckthorn honey sweet. Orange peel. Some furniture polish. Dry, warm wood.
    • Taste
      First nice sweetie. Acacia honey. In the mouth, he is no longer so extremely fruity. But still a lot of yellow fruits (see smell). Tree resin. But then a neat and surprising sharpness sets in. Ginger. In addition, some acid. Haribo sour chips.
    • Finish
      The sharpness and the acid gradually fade away. Suggestion, the fruits are still there. Citrus liquor Tonic Water. Some carnation. oak spice

    [November, 2015]  I had this dram during an "30+ years" tasting at Bonn.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.  Unfortunately I took no detailed notes.

    A fruit bomb ... But the nose is clearly in front ...
    In the taste or in the mouth I had none of so extremely brought the fruit over ...
    A fantastic malt ... I'm blown away!
    Very clear and easy 91 points
    • Nose
      A lot of exotic fruits, mango, banana, star fruit, strawberry, slightly aniseed, as if you open a pack of Haribo Tropical fruit gums the first time, there are really so many smells of different fruits that come ... I can not say that unfortunately ... that must have really smelled.
      Alcohol really nicely integrated, no miss notes, a great nose.
    • Taste
      Alcohol tingles on the tongue, viscous, fruit compote
    • Finish
      Medium long, tropical fruit, the mango is quite overbearing, light banana, strawberry and what is most extreme ... This Haribo Tropical taste ... unbelievable!
