  1. keizerjos scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    For a 12YO of 40%, the nose is simply spectacular, powerful, spicy, horse stable. Apricot. The taste is just a bit thin but then leather, wood, tobacco, vanilla - with an edge of salt and pepper, I don't know exactly how to describe it. I assume that such a bottle cost twenty guilders at the time - I would happily pay thirty euros for it now, certainly with a little more finish. The nose in particular is festive. The aftertaste is short and businesslike. That was it then.

    Pretty nice and tastefull, but also a little thin, it has a little lack of character. Still I enjoyed trying this old bottling.

      Fruity, prunes, spicy as well, like cinnamon and curry powder. Slightly some earthy notes, later on more citrus, and then even some licorice.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Soft, smooth, licorice, sweet drop, a bit thin and watery mouthfeel, later on a bit more power/pepper.

      Still soft and smooth, a lot of licorice, pretty short. Yet the finish has a little more ehhh body than the body...
