Notes from a blind tasting.
Already amazing how close the two, this one and https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/25802/1984-scc are together. One long in a slightly weak barrel and the other very short in a very active barrel, that would be my guess anyway. The flavors are almost congruent, but the performance is of course completely different, nevertheless, very interesting! At any rate, he does not behave like a wine finish for me at all.
First yellow compote, but already seconds after pouring citrus notes develop, actually lemon and some mint and grass, let's see how it develops ...
After a reasonable period of time, the yellow compote has manifested itself as a central note, the citrus notes are only weakly present and some honey is now to be found. Even mint and grass can not be isolated. The alcohol seems to be well integrated, as nothing tickles the nose. Heat brings up floor wax.
Lots of honey in the foreground, in addition a subtle fruitiness and subtle oak notes. The alcohol is strong but very soft, which confirms the impression from the nose that he is well involved here. The mouthfeel is oily, almost tough, very full and round.
The finish is rather quick and is limited to a sweet fading with a lot of honey, from a pleasant heat that will last a good moment.
