    It is worth mentioning with the glasses side by side is that the older GM bottles are a fair bit darker than the official bottles

    An old GM wonder this smells and tastes much older than the stated 12 years.
    Packed with flavour, a belter, i love it.

      First thing to say is that this has a very nice nose on rich sherry mixed with walnuts, hints of orange, ginger and a little raspberry, I love it.

      There is no way on this planet that the oldest whisky in this batting was only 12 years old, there must be some approaching 15 years old possibly older to pad it out, there is also some oak which I was not expecting but the rich fruity Sherry just about smothers it and as you go on it does get sweeter but it would be perfect if it was just a little sweeter.
      Maybe water will do the trick?
      No is the answer but there is a definite change with minimal water, softer more delicate, so flavoursome

    From a flat rectangular mini (70proof, gold top). 
    • Nose
      I wouldn't call this a bright, fresh nose, but there is some subtle fruits, dry leaves, black herbal tea. There's a bit of chartreuse. It's quite nice actually.
    • Taste
      Sweet black tea, some dried fruits like green raisins and apricots, honey, a bit bitter, but a good, viscous mouth feel. 
    • Finish
      Bitterness lingers on, a bit metallic, honey.

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=293 Colour: Old Gold Nose: Rather thin and restrained nose with caramel and toffee. Sticky sweet in combination with sugar and honey this 80% dominates the nose. A little orange, flavors of hemp rope, some cereals and a slightly sour herbal marinade. Taste: Thick and mouth-filling structure with hints of orange and again these sour herbs. In addition, nuts, wood, caramel, mocha, Turkish coffee and liquorice Finish: Rather short - no fruit or sweet notes anymore. Slightly thin and diluted, as well as fading away with the remaining notes of taste. 84 points N: 83P / G: 85P / F: 83P
