Alcohol prominent on the nose. Behind it peaches, yellow plums, mangosteens, pineapple and mangos appear. Utterly lucious, ripe, almost dripping.
The taste is resembles the nose, with quite a strong grip and warming on the tongue and throat, and it takes a looooooooooong time going down predominantly with some ripe pineapples appearing when chewing. (If you like ripe pineapple, check out Glenlossie 1997 FR cask 6766). Oily.Wood kicks in quite a long time after the fruits and the alcohol have been washed away from my tongue.
With water, this bad fruity boy becomes quite a fruity softie (with yellow honey melons appearing). Whereas I prefer the nose with water, I prefer drinking it without.From a sample.
