  7. ARDBERG scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    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.

  8. sagara-kun scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Tasted in parallel with the WTO DL 71 # 5055. The nose is a little less noble, but the mouth is damn racy. it's a draw.
    Superb.
    • Nose
      Lemon candy nose. Apricot. Medicinal. A lot of eucalyptus. Really very well integrated. Light mineral sober.
      There is also a slight buttery side, almost toasted. Great.
    • Taste
      Mouth very fruity. Citrus. Yellow fruits. honeydew Mineral that stands out. It is really very balanced level aromas. Slightly floral on white flowers. A bit of alcohol but the beast ...
    • Finish
      Final super long honey on lemon, acacia.

  9. helmutgw scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    F: medium gold N: Fruit and cereals, no (!) Alcohol, seems closed G: Wow - Fruit and cereals without details - bulky, oily body - warm alcohol - gets hot, it definitely needs water. Sensitive natures could be scared here. A: long, alcoholic, needs water + H2O: water and more water: strong development, the alcohol-blocked aromas emerge: fresh citrus: oranges / nectarines, vanilla, aromatic wood (not: woody), grassy, ​​tea, anise?
