    with a little time and water, a beautiful and solid malt, definitely something undervalued
    • Nose
      roasted yeast pastry, hazelnuts, definitely needs water and time, some woodruff with a malty sweetness
    • Taste
      round, full, spicy, cereal, some caramel and burnt toast
    • Finish
      medium, again caramel, nice sweet, remains a little burned

    • Nose
      Color: rich gold

      Nose: hui..that's going to be difficult.slightly sour, oak wood, very slightly reddened bread .... that's all you can get out of it.
      There has to be water to crack it. Then yellow fruits, a lot of honey, summery, blossoms,
    • Taste
      60.1% are spicy and warming at best, but neither hot nor pungent. But here too ... little to differentiate in taste. Old, malt, honey. End.
      Water: a few drops do nothing. A little more and he opens: honeycomb, old book, malt, a lot of malt, light roasted aroma, mirabelle plums, peaches, sweet marzipan. Very pleasant, but above all the lingering taste of old whisky. By that I mean the 70s, not the 15 years.
    • Finish
      Finish: short without water, long with water. Seldom had one who needs so much water. but it doesn't matter ... it's fun that way.

    • Nose
      A yellow fruit basket, ripe spicy mirabelles, peaches - add 1 drop of water and in addition to vanilla, flower aromas and floor wax added
    • Taste
      ripe papaya, honey, again the floor wax, orange Campino candies, a lot of oak, Orangina soda
    • Finish
      Fruity, toasty, long

  7. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Difficult and agressive whisky. A complete attack on all your senses.
    • Nose
      Smoked ham it's the first impression (not uncommon for Cadenheads bottled in this period). Wet stones. Leafy. Burnt wood and hints of smoke. Later on more flowery notes of violet and freesias.
    • Taste
      Something completely different. Cooked apples. Lemon and grapefruit. Zesty. Quite alcoholic as well (60,1%....). Humus. Eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Long. Hot and spicy (clove). Tanninic and woody. Spearmint.
