    Colour:
    gold
    Nose:
    Tropical fruit basket with pleasant spice! So the first impression. In addition there are full leather aromas, fine herbs and underlying sour fruit aromas that form a harmonious unit.
    Taste:
    Full fruit and a powerful spice. Fat, fresh and voluminous. Mint, herbs, wood and emerging mocha and chocolate notes take away the strength of the tropical fruits - but both parts are very nice.
    Finish:
    Long - and still kept quite fresh here. Slowly but surely again with more fruit and fine honey. Dark teen notes lie on the tongue and enrich the finish
    Comment:
    All three parts with the same rating, but completely different - thanks Carlos!

    This is really one of the most beautiful drams I have tasted for this money

  3. molar3rd scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    The next dram was not finished in any cask, and is presented au naturel, which is just lovely. no need to finish this amazing cask.

    Nose: Ohhh. this is some serious nose! crystallized lemon. Vanilla. Warm wood. Pineapple. Kiwi. Golden syrup. Lychee. in short : Oh My God. this is the kind of nose I LOVE!

    Palate: beautiful stuff going on here as well : red grapefruit , pineapple and wood. Lemon peel, sugared kiwi. Pepper. Vanilla. Old wood varnish. It’s a party of explosive tastes in your mouth, makes you want to sing. Splendid.

    Finish : Wood varnish and red grapefruit, with a bit of wood varnish and soft spices.

    In three words: I love this. Exceptional stuff. it’s not cheap, and is well over my price limit, but if you can afford it, or afford to share a bottle with a mate, major fun is guaranteed.

    Smell and taste just like the OB of Talisker 35yo without smoky sea influences and bitter lemon peel mouth coating.

    And with more typical sweet fruitiness and butter vanilla, strong body but kind of smooth. 

    The finish is pretty long. 

    A really beautiful dram!
