  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: its immediately obvious theres good age here but it still feels like its got a way to go before it gets to my liking. More likely however is it would probably never have got there. Despite 41 years the spirit>wood - down to some less than interested casks. Notes wise: fruity with sherried redcurrants, a tomatoey bovril meatiness and some vanilla, varnish and airfix paint coming through after time. [Vanilla] marmalade, demerara sugar, fruity reduced compote [the kind you pour on your icecream] and mango & pineapple sweet chutney. Nice thickish compote nose overall.
    T: Hmm - the wood and spirit seem to be at loggerheads. A jammy sweetness wins, the winner revealed after an assured and steady crescendo reaching a jammy peak before a massive drop off. Going back to that crescendo for a moment - it comes with aniseed, very fruity with candied fruits, a general freshness and clear varnish. Candied, waxy, oaky vanillas conclude.
    F: back to the drop off and whats left? Vanilla cheese cake. So much vanilla - deep and rich varied vanillas, simple but welcomed.
    C: Fairly light presentation and very enjoyable but frustratingly that cask didn’t contribute much for all those 41 years.
