Nose

Цитрусово-минеральный, сухие, чуть пыльные валуны на раскалённом солнце, сливочные нотки, ваниль, немного столярно-лаковых оттенков.

Taste

Сладко-дубовый, перец, много дуба и кураги с изюмом, мощно, плотно.

Finish
Продолжение вкуса, мягкий перец, дуб, сладость изюма, лёгкие цитрусовые ноты, сушёные, слегка пригоревшие яблоки, плотное, насыщенное, долгое.


Comments

 И снова отлично, теперь и с бочковой крепостью, мощно, плотно, довольно сдержанный аромат, но дальше просто блеск - прекрасный баланс, яркий характер, идеально вписанная во вкус и финиш крепость - молт раскалённого под лучами июльского солнца приморского города.

Sweet and aromatic, nice wood influence with balance between the wood spicies and some elegant almost white wine's aromas, vanilla fudges, slightly waxy,some ginger biscuits and boiled chestnuts.. reminds me a bit of the first glenlivet nadurras..very good

Nose

Very fruity at first impression. Apple and peach. Quite creamy as well, butterscotch, a bit of mint and grapefruit. Maybe a hint of pistachio.

Taste

A strong arrival. Some green apple at first, but the oak dominates. A bit of a waxy mouthfeel, almonds and hazelnuts too.

Finish

Slightly drying and quite bitter. Pistachio peels. Slight notes of citrus and toffee but they don’t stay long. The wood dominates here too.

Colour: Straw.
Nose: Very nice fruity notes (peach), with some nice oakiness, spicy, fresh, on tangerine and lime.
Taste: Oaky, spicy, malty, rich, on vanilla and banana. The finish is medium, smooth, oaky, slightly smoky, fresh and satisfying.
General Impression: The presence of the fresh oak is quite present, but it gives a nice fruitiness to this savouring Glenmorangie.
