  3. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A very fine, very polished and yet intensely aromatic malt. Set and ripe, all aromas well interwoven.
    Despite being only 40% enormously aromatic, a little more body and wastes could not hurt and cost him an even better rating ...
    • Nose
      Dense, compact, deep and very aromatic. Honey, quince jelly, fine drawn and perfectly integrated sherry. A whole bouquet of finest, subtle spices and little herb bitter in the background.
      Ground and set.
    • Taste
      Silky, filigree, and quite lightweight, honed. But intense aromatic and concentrated. Again very fine spices full, the herb bitters are now a bit clearer, fine oak, fine sherry, all beautifully interwoven and polished.
    • Finish
      Fine, but aromatic spice bouquet, which reverberates for a very long time. Honey and printen.

    Round, mature, old, very good!
    • Nose
      Full, round, ripe, sherry, a lot of spices. Despite only 40% enormously rich.
    • Taste
      Very gentle yet powerful, oily. Spices, sweet, dark fruits, raisins, spices.
    • Finish
      At the end, the spices remain clear. Some oak. The fruit retreats. Will dry.
