    [October, 1998]  I had this dram during a tasting at Kyrburg. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram 82,5.  My notes state it had a quite rich profile.

    On the nose, sweet apples with honey and a hint of marzipan. Compared to the 12 rounder and sweeter and less fresh. However, similarly mild and reserved.

    In the mouth it is sweeter but unfortunately just as watery as the 12.

    In the finish, unfortunately, still no taste explosion, but at least fruity-sweet notes of pear and grapes and a hint of oak.

    Grade: 2-

    Wonderfully soft. Not a long finish, but a bit tingling. delicious with a cheese or next to a strong cup of coffee. However, not really very exciting. Hence a 9 instead of a 10
