    Mature, round malt with excellent value for money.
    • Nose
      The malt opens with a sweet cappuccino note and - for me rather unexpectedly - a slight smoke flavor. After the astonishment is overcome, it is grassy at first, is almost in the direction of hay. Second surprise, I had rather typed in a fruity basic direction. Already in the nose, the malt suggests maturity. Here is nothing wild, Umreifes. Here it is dignified too. Reminiscent of many beautiful, Bourbon-stored Speysider earlier years.
    • Taste
      60.6% ABV after over 29 years in the barrel are already an announcement. Very creamy mouthfeel. Warm but not biting, also undiluted and well-tolerated with full strength. Nutty notes, with a very broad, grainy taste. Malty-sweet and interwoven with fine smoke flavors that blend with vanilla and naktarines. After a while in the mouth, the taste changes. Whole milk orange chocolate I associate loosely - although the fruitiness for my taste may be even more pronounced, but what is there, is remarkably delicious and gives the malt a rare mature, multi-layered-elegant character, which is essentially at rest matured refill bourbon barrels.
    • Finish
      Powerful, warm, slowly drying, with still malty hints. Still slightly flowery honey. Bittertöne are here even after almost 30 years of failure. Oak notes I can really only really perceive towards the end. The Malt is the way, the exceptionally high alcohol content let it already suspect, an excellent swimmer. Not that he really needed a few drops of water, but it certainly does not hurt. It makes the malt more lively, fruity, but at the expense of depth. Everyone as he likes, even. Incidentally, I have neither any flavor nor taste in the taste notes. In addition, it should be pointed out that the scent from the glass will still inspire you the day after. Light smoke and fruit sweetness also make 'dried out' a very pleasing scent combination.

    Blind tasting.

    Later compared with Dailuaine 1983AM AM004 and Dailuaine 1997 SV #7188.
    • Nose
      Moccha, cocao - chocolate, oily, shoe polish and plums.
    • Taste
      A trace of ashes, very nice full with nice fruits, citrus and honey. Nuts - walnuts. Later a briny note and some saltiness.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with vanilla, malty tones, fruity - peach, and some liquorice.

    87/88.

    If anyone has an empty bottle or just the label for me please let me know, the label of mine is damaged.
    • Nose
      Honey, citrus, pear, white chocolate, orange, vanilla, malt, leather, smoke, toffee, grass and roasted coffee beans. With water it becomes fresher.
    • Taste
      A totally unexpected note of peat smoke. Honey, orange, pepper, nuts, leather and malt.
    • Finish
      Honey, smoke, pear, caramel, malt, goji berry and cigar.
