  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2006]  Together with friends I finished a bottle that I bought for 72 Euro in June, 2006.

    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.  My notes state it is a very delicate and complex dram that takes its time to fully enfold both in the nose and on the palate.

    • Nose
      Nose: After letting it land well in the bottom of the glass for half an hour, the apple almost wants to push the lid that I placed at the top of the glencairn. It is very fruity and sweet. It is very fragrant and creamy to perfection. There is honey and a nice minty freshness. A touch of banana too ripe. Probably marshmallow. Natural pasta is magic. In the empty glass of ginger and a floral scent.
    • Taste
      Palate: Sweetness and richness. A creamy vanilla. The melted look of wood, fruit, honey and spices that cradle a tender bitterness. A it's good, if I could only be the owner of this bottle.
    • Finish
      Finale: Soothing, with some sweet spices. Return of a fresh apple. Mint leaf, I mean nothing to do with the smell of mint, when you taste a leaf the vegetal side dominates the fresh aspect. All this works well with the nose and mouth and avoids the sickening side of some fruity and monolithic whiskys. To finish with the bitterness of tea.
