  1. wbarchive_875995 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Nice whisky, but for 16 years old pretty poor. It may appeal to people who like airy and tender mols. It would be interesting at full strength, since even at the minimum it shows a very oily and tender body.
    • Nose

      Very soft, almost elusive, open, not complex. Basket of yellow fruits: yellow apples, yellow pears, pineapples, a little vanilla, nuances of chocolate, marzipan and skin, pancakes with honey.
    • Taste

      Here it is very interesting: decently oily for its strength, but at the same time very airy and almost imperceptible, soft, with a slight bitterness. Yellow apples, honey, pears, some chocolate, sweet spices and marzipan, hardly noticeable off-notes of wet cardboard.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Slightly tart, flat, but rather slowly fading. Wet wood, vanilla, malt, nuances of baking, bread, milk chocolate.

    A mature Speyside dram. Delicious.
    • Nose
      At first I thought I could feel a hint of smoke. Full and intense in the nose. Ripe, light fruits (pear and apricot), forest honey and milk chocolate. Some damp leather, spices and oak.
    • Taste
      Heavy and oily, sweet and fruity. Right behind it are spices, caramel, vanilla, leather and oak.
    • Finish
      Long with licorice, coffee and some citrus fruit.

    Notes from 4/28/15:

    Well-rounded and approachable but nothing to write home to mom about. As a step up from the entry level Classic I feel this one is a bit disappointing.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Honeyed with some kind of wild honey. Woodsy spice. Lacks in strength some.
    • Taste
      76 76
      Again seems weaker - too dilute at 40%? Same flavors as the nose.
    • Finish
      76 76
      Finish carries the tune. Has the extra few years taken away the charm of the Classic?

    • Nose
      Emphasizes malty and nutty with buttery pancakes made from buckwheat flour, tender oak, hay and caramelized cooking apples. Gradually follow a trail of summer honey, floral accents and a slight earthiness. Overall, of course, wonderful with a nice balancing act of salty, nusseigen and floral aromas.
    • Taste
      First oily-nutty aromas, a lot of robust malt, oak, hay, apples and slightly buttery as well as roasted aromas. Reminiscent of an apple pie like grandma's.
    • Finish
      Long, warm and malty. It gets rustier and nuttier over time.
