Old gold
Nose

interessante trocken-würzig Noten (Kardamom? Sternanis? Ingwer? - kann's nicht genau festnageln, irgendwas dazwischen), Malz, trockenes Heu, dahinter eine zurückhaltende Toffeesüße

Taste

würzig-süß, statt Toffe eher Nussschokolade, schärfer (Pfeffer/Ingwer), Lebkuchen, verträgt sogar etwas Wasser

Finish

ziemlich lang, schokoladig-pfeffrig

Comments

Wow. Für 20-25€ ein sehr schöner Blended Malt mit Charakter. Der kann auch einige langweilige Einsteiger-Single-Malts abhängen.

Nose

Fairly malty nose on mild spices from the wood, some toffee and baked apples. Hint of smoke in the background. Roasted Brésilienne nuts. Nice, but quite sweet.

Taste

It becomes a tad more bitter on the palate than anticipated, but within the acceptable. Again a big sweetness, which not only reminds me of fruit, but also of chocolate. The spiciness is quite prominent now, with pepper in the lead, followed by ginger. Reminds me somewhat of Christmas cake, with candied fruit and nuts. This is actually quite good and punchy for only 43% ABV.

Finish

In the medium long, peppery finish, some cinnamon rears its head.

Comments

Summer dram. Not even 30 EUR. Bang for your buck.

Very sweet and spicy. I think the spicy part is welcome/necessary, though I still miss some depth. Nevertheless, a nice blended malt, especially for this price.

This smooth blended malt contains vanilla flavors of an Aultmore 4 year old,

the rich spice from some Tomatin 1987,

 a dash of fruit cake from a 2006 Mortlach

 and thick, nutty, chocolate notes from late 90s Ben Nevis.

 A fine tribute to Perth and a smashing addition to the whisky cupboard.
