  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      In the first place, wax, then glue, as found in old grains, or some rums! Ultra fragrant! Rancio, leather, port, chocolate ... Creme brulee and caramel sauce.
    • Taste
      Melted to the extreme, beautiful vanilla. Spices surrounded by velvet honeyed sweetness!
    • Finish
      We find these sweet spices with chocolate.

      What a good moment!

      Nose & Mouth: 5/5
      Final 4/5

      Whisky n ° 2085

    the last 2nd cru that I missed!
    • Nose
      spices!! on coriander, paprika, nutmeg, it's dry and sweet, there's honey in there, with hay, it's a bit peppery
      wood, stubborn, intense, a little mold
      wax on a leather chair, cream
      undifferentiated fruits with vanilla in return, but stewed and macerated!
    • Taste
      profusion of spices, wood !!
      cooked and toasted kernel arrives, it's very good and tenacious
      leather, concentrated sherry (yes, if!), licorice too, old polish, moldy and cooked nuts, which macerates in its shell
      the wood in return, and roasted coffee beans!
      macerated and maderized fruits !!
    • Finish
      long on wood, leather, fruit with cooked mandarin peel
      liquorice, coffee and black cocoa
      honey and spices fluffy!

    [December, 2007]  I had this dram during a "30+ years" tasting at Bonn.

    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 95+. 
    My notes state a full-bodied profile with slightly smokey notes.  I called it "superlecker!" (ultra-delicious).

    The nose and palate are similar but what I liked in the nose, I didn't like as much for the palate. An old single grain or rum feeling. This is a very good whisky, just not my preferred profile.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Honey, precious woods, dried fruits (prunes, raisins) and stewed fruits (apples, plums), various spices, old leather and dusty books, chocolate and toffee.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Rum raisin, coconuts, vanilla, spices, honey, various nuts, liquorice, precious woods and just a tiny bit of oak which is impressive for this age.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long. Lingering fruits and spices.
