    Old-style sherry nose, but the palate is wrecked by soap. Hard to believe this was actually bottled.

      Oranges, honey, old furniture and a touch of soap

    This could be a great whisky if it wouldn't have this artificial element. Still pleasant. 22 P. 
    • Nose
      The nose is quite powerful, especially given the age of this whisky. Yet on the other side, it still has a whopping 56.9% ABV that helps here. It has a pleasant smell of wood: sandal wood and antique furniture. Next: honey, biscuit, stewed peach, sweet orange, fresh mint and cinnamon pastry. Simply delicious. 23 P. 
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, very rounded and sweet. Intense and thick honey, vanilla custard, sandal wood, yet a strange perfumed (almost plastic) note. Too bad, as this tastes articicial. To the end, there is cinnamon stick (intense and a tad dry). 20 P. 
    • Finish
      The artificial taste remains, but gets more flower-driven (rose water) to the end. Further, there is peach, soft spices and sandal wood. 21 P.

    The nose has cloves and wine gums, my beloved cinnamon and some rather old oak; 

    the body is lovely wineish(not too sweet!) with orange-chocolate and some peppermint; 

    the finish is long, with mint, wood and again the chocolate with the cinnamon! Perfect whisky!
