    Not so close to cask 7536 much more herbal but still with that very nice lochside (malt) fruitiness

    An old whisky with a very interesting nose whose mouth is unfortunately ruined by an excessive alcoholic presence. Pity.
    • Nose
      The first nose is austere, vegetal, although shined with a touch of acidity and exotic (lime lime). Another one that seems to require a little time. Aeration softens it considerably, making it more exuberant. The greenness of the beginning gives way to surprising coconut notes in an old sherry cask, was it a hogshead. The lime is tangerine, resinous notes appear, as well as a sweet exoticism and finally woody hints come to betray the age of this venerable malt. Very nice evolution in the glass.
    • Taste
      The attack is tart, but the alcohol is quickly felt. Beautiful exotic notes (pineapple, coconut) and tart are combined with a woody presence, but still controlled. Unfortunately, it is not a good swimmer, because if water soothes the burning of alcohol, it also brings out the taste.
    • Finish
      Long, woody but without astringency, on pineapple and coconut.
