    I will remembre the body, and the finish. The noze was Nice by quite shy, and ester. The body and first taste is very Nice and quite strong, and this, I like ! A touch of milk in the end, bit suprising but good. A beautifull whisky.

    A good North Port. I have tasted some less good expressions.
    • Nose
      Very closed at the beginning, some woody notes, some sherry and very estery (reduced: more veggie/floral like notes [green beans], smokey, fruity acids, very high in estery notes)
    • Taste
      Creamy, firm and spirity (reduced: more floral, earthy and some sherry fruit like notes)
    • Finish
      Spicy (nutmeg?), medium in length, warm

    A very pleasant surprise, but I do not believe this one
    is still around. Thanks, Bert!
    • Nose
      The nose is somewhat dirty. Apart from mineral
      elements (grass, wet rocks, gyproc), I mostly get mashed potatoes. With loads
      of butter and an egg in the mix. Lots of garden herbs, too. Only then do I get
      some sweetness in the form of honey and grains. Becomes sweeter all the time
      and develops nicely. But it needs time.
    • Taste
      A bit oily on the palate with a fierce spicy kick to
      the teeth. Pepper, (a lot of) salt, liquorice. Powerful attack, really. Some
      apples and hints of pears. Nice smokiness, too. The tannins take care of a
      slight bitterness that keeps things in balance. This is good!
    • Finish
      The finish is very long, salty and bitter at the same
      time and leaves the mouth medium dry.
