- Varnish, sherry, dried fruits, menthol, chocolate, leather, crystallised sugar, excellent
- Powerful and complex - fantastic!
Sweetest acacia honey, dried apricots, raisins, molasses, prunes, plums, crystallized oranges, stewed cherries, jam, wet tobacco, toffee, chocolate, little fragrant, spices, menthol, fine sherry notes - superb!
Punchy, creamy, sirupy, more stewed fruits, jam, cooked and dried berries, more honey, toffee, good sweetness, also some ham, bacon and beef bouillon, good oak wood, hints of old papers, some herbs - excellent!
Long, warm, more herbal, flowery and just little soapy hints but really almost nothing
Toffee, sherry, leather, furniture polish, crema di balsamico, sultanas, currants, prunes, finest cherries, soft and sweet, honey and caramel flavors, almost no acidity, extremely balanced, fine cigar tobacco, behind the honey notes are herbs, such as marjoram, oregano , Laurel and eucalyptus, old wood, the smell of a library. The longer the whisky breathes the better the cask notes get through. Sublime.
Thick, sherry notes, juicy peaches, dark and red fruits, furniture polish, pepper, leather, super yummy.
Big sherry, dark chocolate, mint, crema di balsamico, espresso, ginger, chilli, cayenne pepper and cabbage. Very long and spicy. Wood in blue tea.
- http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=179 Color: Old Gold / Amber Nose: Salty lemon juice with red cherries. In addition aromas of rhubarb cake, shortcrust pastry and bread, wet newspaper, some leather, orange peel and mint, oregano and marjoram Taste: Thin consistency with lots of fresh eucalyptus "Fisherman's friend", spicy red chili, salt, cayenne pepper, china grass and ginger. Fruity Jam, fresh and spicy and actually young in flavor (blind never 39yo). To the finish with more oak wood. Finish: Very long - very spicy, but still fresh and somehow "young" with hints of old wood and dried fruits. After the decay of the spicy-spicy accents, the finish of fish soup with chilli and lots of fresh china reminds us of grass and ginger. Note: The freshness is a bit too strong. With a lot of spicy sharpness. 90 points N: 91P / G: 89P / F: 89P
- N- lots of yellow fruits. banana essence, green papayas, liquorice, waxxyness with hints of eucalyptus. Honey.
P- thin silky and oily texture, bitter cocoa, eucalyptus, hints of prunes, liquorice, some tropical fruits and herbs. Woody.
F - long. Menthol, spicy wood, tanins, chocolate raisin.
Some says what derive from this dram is not a nose, it is a sin. What
does it take to make a whisky at such richness and refinement? Simply
amazing and jaw dropping. A pandora box of all evils. Dark sherry dried
fruits characters of herbal, monk fruits rush to mask your senses. Honey
and dark berry jams spread on charred barks smokes, gunpowder. Waxy. P- Rich and jammy dark fruits lead the way, underlay with intriguing
grilled lemon, starfruit and other citrus characters. Charred smokes
tartness add the depth with waxy coating. Spicy chocolate.
Long long long. Infusion of Yomeishu, herbal and abundant of fine dark
spirits lingers. If 5 stars a top, I would give this a 6.
