[Finish]: Powerful in both nose and return! Flavor is also peach, strawberry, lemon and mint. Sweetness of peach and clear sugar.
- A midsummer night's dream. Beautiful.
Waxiness, hint of nut in the background , nots of tropical fruits and honey. Use a drop of water. More will come.
Amazing sweetness, The honeyed element continues this time with more rich tropical fruits even with the water. Complex.
Long, fruited and elegant. Take your time with this one. No hurry.
- A very good dram. Just an inch shy of magnificent.
Slightly greasy, vaguely fruity, with pollen, fresh flowers and corn. Butter that's been on the table a while, A bit of smoke comes out with water.
Neat it's a little too nervous for my tastes, but with some water to cut it it settles into its frame better, and what a work of art it is when it does. Waxy, honeyed. Leather bags and faint fruitiness.
Leaves an oily impression with a little bit of salted liquorice.
- This Whisky was sold for 445,-€ at Whiskyauction 10/2015
- Great bottle label, one of the best.
- WITH WATER
Sweeter on the nose with candied fruits and a little honey. The palate is OK but the oak is coming through just a tad too much for my liking.
Finish - getting a little bitter but still pleasant.
Its not complicated, what I would call old school single malt, does the job without fuss but not quite great.
Smoked meats mixed in with pineapple, kiwi and slight gooseberry notes. There is also rich fruit cake and a very slight woodiness.
Potent, slightly bitter on the tip of the tongue with sweetness at the back of the palate. There is some fruit, green gauge? There is also caramel wafer.
Long, quite dry and slightly bitter.
