    Of course it does not rule out the state of my drink, I think it is not as good as expected. It's really been a bit over-followed these years, and I don't think it's a great work.

      First of all, the opening degree is very low, and the perception of smell is weakened (in contrast with the entrance). After the cup wakes up for more than ten minutes, there is not much change; not sure if it needs to be dripped? I didn't do that. Very faint oak flakes, fruity aroma, citrus peel, grapefruit peel, and some ginger. You can feel that it seems to have a detailed level, but it is really limited by the low opening degree of the whole, and the aroma is always suppressed It smells very low in pleasure, as I often say, simple pleasure is not as good as the complexity of the tired heart.

      Very strong and powerful wine body, very oily and solid, but also brings a lot of alcohol stimulation, aldehyde stimulation, peppery spicy feeling; honey, cucumber, a lot of woody tannins, strong sense of convergence; middle and late flowers and fruits Aroma, accompanied by rich malt sugar. (A little bit of bitterness - 1 point)

  4. Seele scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    N is sweet, honey, walnut, if not so sweet, it should be a very old-school highland aroma
    The entrance of T is very rich and sweet, with some tannins and pepper, but there is no other uni's hot and spicy feeling.
    F is medium and long, a little bit bitter, the green tea is quite ordinary and strong in a highland barrel, the green tea feeling at the end makes this wine a little better

  5. ConvalRen scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Well rounded but lacks a compelling palate which was seen to be better off in the 1971 release.
