  1. kraeftigen scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    That's when the heart is happy. Get half a bottle as a gift. 1966 Yeah. Year of birth bottle ... and open ... so here with the dram.
    First nose is very closed ... it takes time. So we turn it a little in the glass ... oily, the whisky runs down the glass .. very nice. Color, bright gold? Straw? In any case bright. The nose becomes fruity. Bright fruits, lemon .. vanilla clear ... nice wood ... looks older than 12 .. stuffy .. what I like about "old" whisky. So to whisky from the era. Then again very fresh fruity notes. Ties together nicely ...
    Creamy and mouth-filling in the mouth ... again this fresh yellow fruit and this light muff that tastes a bit like ashes ... Good wood ... that's not the case anymore!
    I do not want to write that better than it is. It's a standard of 12 but with flavors that no longer exist today and that gives it 90 points! Because it will never be like this again, unfortunately!
