    I would agree that this whisky may qualify as digestif or bitters and thus better for the aperitif. Fortunately I like bitters.
    • Nose
      Honey, dried fruits, old books, little toffee
    • Taste
      Pretty punchy, oily, toffee, peppery, subtle sweetness, some drying oak, then some Mediterranean spices such as Thyme, Oregano, Marjoram and even a little Sage
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, little zesty - I would say even a tad bitter in the end

      With water it becomes much sweeter in the end

    What a nose. If it were in the mouth and especially in the finish on the same level, it would be a mega macaque. Unfortunately, he loses a few crucial points there. Still very good.
    • Nose
      What a beguiling nose: honey, the heavy tropical flowers of the 70s, toffee, candle wax. Quince and apricot jam. Enormously expressive, enormously deep, very intense.
    • Taste
      Toffee full, dusty, OBF, clearly herbal liqueur. Round, expressive, spicy, good body, very harmonious.
    • Finish
      Intensively herb bitter, dry, astringent. Rather short.

  5. Master Quill did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This would be from the 90`s and should have a laser printed G&M code like ID/BLA.
