      Lots of prunes. Sultanas. Coffee and chocolate. Raisins. Cranberry juice.

    First fill into fresh bourbon barrels on 20th december 1984, matured for almost 14 years until 14th of october 1998. Then it was vatted and transferred into fresh sherry butts.

    Note of 2012:
    Whoa. Delicious. Before bottling everything still smells of chocolate, now I open the vial, and it comes to me an intense walnut cloud, then a breeze of basil. After pouring then full kitchen shelf in the nose, basil, thyme, Maggi, then on the tongue nice heavy, walnut, sweet, bittersweet, you do not want to let out of his mouth. Then stick well too. Good pure drinkable, because I do not need water. But for the record a droplet ... ne, let it be, that's fine as it is.

  7. Titi94 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Its strength, its roundness, its thickness and its suavity are guarantors of a remarkable maturation.
    • Nose
      Rich. Melted butter caramel. Slight notes of dried fruits. Here, the common thread is leather: from the softness of suede to the leather of an old armchair.
    • Taste
      Extraordinarily concentrated. Bitter butter caramel, dark chocolate, sour cherry. Similar to a very old bourbon.
    • Finish
      Dried coconut Suave and long.
