2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.06 points
- http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=259 Color gold Nose: leather, wax, vanilla, fresh accents of lemon juice and green aromas and finest herbs - almost without any spice. Taste: Rounded, creamy and now tenderly spicy - here you can feel the 20 years barrel aging. Full-bodied sweet with lots of caramel, tart, delicately fruity and becoming sweeter towards the finish. Nuts and some wood - dry-sweet but always fresh and strong. Finish: Medium long - sweet and fresh. A combination of wood and delicate herbs tries to resist this sweetness. 89 points N: 88P / G: 89P / F: 87P
- N: Old style blend, gritty and scorched with guar gum and sweet caramel. Rather like this profile.
T: Initially thin becoming richer but it doesn't take water. Plenty of oak. Blended by nature, consolidated and silky - literally like soft cotton
F: Sweetish and dry. Plenty of caramel of course with a touch of savoury sweetness too. Becomes very dry, grainy and oaky before finishing with some curried, fruity notes.
C: Bells, a very nice blend back in the day.
