  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Liquid history, that's what they call this, right? Lovely stuff, with a bit of melancholy thrown in. Not too shabby.
    • Nose
      Somewhat malty and quite fruity, with notes of triple sec and mandarin peel. Surprisingly fresh, even after quite a few years of bottle ageing. The fruits are beautiful, with a good amount of tinned pineapple leading the way, accompanied by nectarine marmalade, and whiffs of beeswax. Pretty delicious.
    • Taste
      Oily with a lovely subtle waxiness. Quite a classic profile, something you won't often encounter in modern whiskies. A light sweetness, accompanied by a slight oak-y bitterness and soft ginger notes and cloves, but also sweet mango and a hint of brown sugar.
    • Finish
      Lingering bitterness at first. Finally some green veggies.
