- Bought: 08.11.2015, in Aschaffenburg Tasting: 08.11.2015 When I read the tasting notes of my predecessor, I did not really want to open the bottle anymore. But the flavors described there, have somehow made me curious. To anticipate it, none of it, but nothing at all, I could see (come back to self-doubt, I have ne bad sensors, or worse?). Of course, almost 53% of the alcohol drilled down the nose, why not, for the higher alcohol content, I finally paid :-) Instead of the metallic, rotten apples, a pleasant malting and hazelnut touch caresses the nose and after some time actually come beautiful Apple notes through. On the palate, the experience is similarly fine and brings a lasting salivation. I had a great, solid dram in the glass that makes it worthwhile to spend more time with him. He earns everything, but not 70%
- Strathmill 1988 WW8 (Whisky WareHouse No. 8)
Tasted 2014-11-22 @ Bottle Market Messe Bremen: Odor: slightly metallic despite his age, even a bit foul. In the background, still apple. Taste: rough alcoholic, needs water. Long-lasting sweetish-nutty taste.
