    This whisky has been distilled on my exact birthday. I've opened a bottle for my 30th and tasted it yearly since that.

    As expected, the whisky has slightly changed over time. During the first 2 to 4 years it was just getting a bit sweeter and fruitier but not really changing otherwise. After about 5 years the slight bitterness in the finish started fading out. Since that it remained rather unchanged, until this year I detected a hint of perfume on the nose. This is the first negative effect I've been able to notice.

    There is about 30cl left in the bottle, so I'm planning to continue this experiment for maybe another 10 years.
    • Nose
      Rather fruity, citrus, nectarine, apricot, green apple, some oak, caramel candy, a whiff of honey.
    • Taste
      Malty cookies, vanilla, citrus, exotic fruits, a bit of salt, allspice, Demerara sugar.
    • Finish
      A bit oaky, allspice, some malty sweetness, fresh plums, a hint of salt, a bit of dry hay and occasionally even a whiff of peat.

    • Taste
