    What a nice surprise! Oil and camphor. Old style whisky with peppery notes.

    Nice stuff, no need to add water very smooth for the high abv.
    • Nose
      Quite refined considering the high abv.

      Vey nice. olive oil, faint apple & plum, honeycomb, salted caramel
    • Taste
      Sweet, oily sweet and thick on the palate, apricot, biscuit  and a little maple syrup 
    • Finish
      Quite long, and sweet.

  7. cuhp scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Balanced ABV. Tasted blindly. 
    • Nose
      Almost "dark" in terms of liquorice, grain, hazelnuts, walnuts and cedar tree. 
    • Taste
      Liquorice with coal, honey and almonds. Quite dry. 
    • Finish
      The finish is very similar to the taste and is medium and dry.

    [December, 2016]  I drank one of these bottles around the millennium already but as I can not remember how it tasted I opened another one today (inspired by the high ratings here on WB).  I bought a 200 ml bottle for 11 Euro (yes, just eleven Euro) in April, 2006.

    It is a typical Rare Malt edition: a fat, oily malt that blenders do love (I guess the casks for the Rare Malt bottlings were all selected by the masterblenders of Diageo).  The nose is sweet but not very complex as is the body and finish too.  It is good to sip, but neither impressive nor very special.  With some water it opens up nicely and now it turns into a delicious dram.  Still not overly complex, but all in all a very balanced, rounded and massive malt.  I can understand why blenders love these characteristics.  But it certainly needs some water (not just drops, rather a fair share)...
