    G&M Tasting Notes

    COLOUR
    Golden Amber.AROMA without water A soft, classic sherry nose. It abounds with damsons, Turkish raisins, and a dry, almond nuttiness. TASTE without water
    In the mouth, there's bountiful dark chocolate, and espresso beneath ripe plums, apricot kernels and intense orange oils. TASTE with water
    Watchful dilution emphasises the almond and marzipan notes,
    developing the nose into a slightly sweeter proposition. Simultaneously,
    it punctures that perceptible alcohol strength on the neat dram.Preis: 7500

  3. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Exquisite herbal/fruitiness of the highest order. Intense yet delicate, fresh and vibrant and like a perfume and old soap - Sapoleti Guerlain Savon Au Blanc De Baleine for example. Old furniture polish, shoe polish, dark cherry liqueur, sweet oils, old vanillas.
    T: Extraordinary gluey sweetness, potting sheds and household chemicals from yesteryear.  I feel extremely under qualified to understand this whisky. The profile has smells i barely recognise and my modern references don’t seem to be much use here. Noting that there are chocolate sherry notes simply doesn’t cut it. Its clear this wood is old, it goes deep down, roots deep but you wouldn't call it a dominatrix. Furthermore, this isn’t about spirit and wood anymore, this has gone somewhere else entirely.
    F: Its a drying finish and an old residual ‘oldness’ which resides. The smoke permeates the sides of your mouth like you’ve been a heavy cigar smoker for decades. You’re left with no doubt that this whisky its very old but still very much intact.
    C: An extraordinary taste of history.
