    Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun.com (April 28, 2014):

    Colour: mahogany.

    Nose: this time we’re starting with coffee-schnapps, more roasted coffee with a smoky side (wood smoke), unexpected notes of custard and quite some milk chocolate. In the background, herbs and grasses and even a little bread. Pencil shavings. I have to say it’s got some traces of new white oak, which is kind of funny. With water: even more so, with also a farmyardy side.

    Mouth (neat): a firm and zesty attack on bitter oranges and white pepper, with quite a lot of cinnamon that gives it a drying side. The oak really comes out, there’s a feeling of strong black tea. With water: same. Also chocolate again, marmalade and ginger.

    Finish: rather long, more on coffee again. A rather oaky aftertaste.

    Comments: we haven’t reached the same heights as with the 1993s (1993/2013, 59.1%, OB, Abbey Whisky, Oloroso sherry butt, cask 33, 592 bottles) and 1992s (1992/2009, 58.8%, OB, Parkers Whisky, oloroso sherry butt, cask #401, 626 bottles ; 1992/2013, 51.8%, OB, Taiwan, oloroso sherry butt, cask #1159, 220 bottles) in my opinion, but this remains extremely fine. Just a little drying.

    SGP:462 - 86 points.
