  4. alectron scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    • Nose
      egg-nogg, leather, pleather, earth, grains & grist, some chocolate (over due date), caramel/butterfudge note, very milky/creamy.  (84)
      A bit later: turns even more creamy, now with a funny/interesting sour/sweet/austere character all at once. Leather, slightly stale butter, plum & strawberry jam, (85)
      A bit later again: sour & austere notes get pushed into the back, creamyness still increases, now with lots of butterfudge/caramel, very pleasant but less unique/adventurous. (87)
    • Taste
      bright sweetness, custard, sweet cherry & plum jam, but also dark wood and a tad dirty (coal & granite dust),  (88)
    • Finish
      more custard cream, honey even leaning towards an interestingly robust floral note, at the end there's something slightly metallic (for some reason I'm thinking of a zink water-basin),  (85)
