    Top
    dram! MoS bottled a Glenallachie 1973 (only 125 bottles) that was very, very
    good. This one comes rather close, but is a lot more expensive.
    • Nose
      Very aromatic and fruity nose on all kinds of juicy fruits like
      pineapple, peach, litchi, pink lady apples and Donyenné du Comice pears. The
      whole in drenched in soft, dark honey with a drop of coconut milk. Unpeeled
      potatoes? Wonderful. Heathery flowers and freshly cut grass lend it a floral
      touch, turning this nose into a jewel.
    • Taste
      On the palate, the oak speaks first, rather spice, to turn
      wonderfully bittersweet on grapefruit and nuts. Mildly drying, but the honey
      makes sure everything remains sweet enough. Not as complex as the nose
      promised, but still a beautiful whisky. Midpalate the pears return, in great form.
    • Finish
      The
      warm, medium long finish turns a tad dry and bitter, but all-in such a way that
      this is simply delicious.

    Quite a bit dissapointing regarding age and price.
    Very promising nose, to which unfortunately taste and finish cannot keep up to.
