- Delicious old NAS bottling. So not that I would find a missing age statement a good thing, but: If something like this was issued today as a standard NAS, it would always end up on my shelf. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/10/28/old-rare-flight-003/
- Here I can contradict my prescriber, even though my bottle had lost almost 10cl before I opened it. A wonderful OBF with light floral notes, hints of vanilla and toffee.
For the 40% neat in the beginning, the aromas are also present in the mouth, the floral combines with delicate wood and in the aftertaste the vanilla with a lot of fruit.
A great drop with backbone (if you see the loss of evaporation) without frills, straightforward, clean and medium-long aftertaste
A little note on determining the authenticity of the bottle:
I have uploaded several different labels that are always printed differently with content and alcohol information that something like this is possible without being wrong!
The most common type of bottle is labeled SC 736. I've also had the Type 6010 before.
Extra points for the promising nose. I'm afraid this one is way past its prime, because in addition to the heat, it does have the typical negative OBE where notes show up and then they vanish a second later. Just too much air over the years.
Nice harmonic nose with a lot of butter, cake dough and hay. Slightly oily, some raw barley aromas. Citrusy and a soft note of green apples. Excellent No nonsense nose. Quiet but substantial.
Strong initial attack on an old vanilla fudge note that reminds of the old Balvenie Founder's Reserve. Amazingly identical. Some pepper and citrus notes right before it gets hot. Too hot.
The heat really masks the finish. Some vanilla, maybe some barley and thats it.
