Conclusion: very interesting and exciting. The old 12er is pleasant drinkable, no burning felt. The sulfur is not strong or unpleasant. So for me no ordinary dram. For 50 € quite worth a try. And as I said when I compare it with Tastingnotes of the new 12er, then cuts off here but better.
First impression: lemon and fruity. Overall, however, very reserved, but pleasant, no burning. So slowly, then comes a little honey. And after a minute or two comes the impression of toffee and butter biscuits. So slowly comes a little sulfur. So for me quite a new and interesting combination. I have to say that.
Taste: Now the sulfur with a sweetness is clearly noticeable. However, not overloaded. Very weak, the lemon is still recognizable. Likewise a bit barrel / oak, whereby I would then rather assign in the direction of grain. Again, the whisky is mild and well integrated, no burning. Likewise, the toffee note and also some marshmallow is recognizable.
Finish: Pleasant and short to medium long. A little tartaric acid is noticeable. Again, there are slight hints of sulfur, but which disappear very quickly. Very little is the lemon still noticeable. By contrast, the butter biscuit remains. Clearly now is also something noticeable, which I would classify in the direction candle wax / incense. In any case, I felt like in a church.
