  1. Dirk scored this whisky 90 points Super Administrator

    Old stuff, fair doses of wood influence. Dusty and old, takes quite some time to get the fruits out. But they do emerge. Wondering why this was still available for such a price. A lot of very sweet honey. I like sweet whiskies but even for me this is almost to much.
    • Nose
      Nose is restrained and woody, takes a very long time to get some oranges, a bit of tropical fruits. But when they surface it keeps improving. After about 30 minutes it is what you would expect: tropical and fresh fruits. Guave, melon some notes of blueberries,
    • Taste
      Although thin it shows many tropical fruits, guave, melon and oranges. Peaches, apricots and some wood. Surprised to be honest, it takes a bit of time but it develops perfectly. Honey and oranges, some kiwi and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Mid long to long all on tropical fruits and oranges. Just a little fresh wooden note in the end. After having the bottle emptied for about 80% it is becoming very sweet and fruity.
