      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.

    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-
    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.

    F-
    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.
