At the beginning a lot of peach in the foreground, followed by overripe light fruit and vanilla/honey aromas. Over time, the oak comes to the fore, definitely not a bad note, but the oak doesn't fit 100% into this malt for me.
A transfer from Blenders to Glencairn again shows its weakness, overall too unspectacular and one-sided.
Because it tastes very good to me and still lies charmingly in the glass, that's enough for me for 88 points - for more points the complexity, that certain something and also the perfection is missing.
A bit too much oak again, followed by honey sweetness and then a (nice) bitterness again. The alcohol at the end was a bit too present for the 46% and the age.
With a little water and time, the slightly alcoholic finish largely disappears, but it also loses volume and viscosity very noticeably as a result.
Medium length but not very intense. Too alcoholic for the age.
