  1. didi1893 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A solid and absolutely unobtrusive bottling. Full of character but also multi-layered, with dark yellow fruits, malty grain notes and floral elements dominating. Voluminous dress wonderfully coordinated flavors from the palate, powerfully the flavors stick for a long time between the tongue and the palate. A great old bottling which knows how to convince with its charming character, tastes and I like it very much!

    • Nose
      Intense straw shimmers powerfully and mysteriously in the Premium Snifter. A syrup-like streak sticks to the glass wall from which a large number of long and oily drops are released. I enjoy watching the long "legs" on their endless journey back into the glass. Malty, slightly roasted cereal aromas come into their own with a hint of citrus fruits. Apricots and mirabelle plums mix with apples and pears, slightly caramelized sugar shows a slight floral touch. The nose looks very fresh and fruity at the moment. There is a minimal hint of rum pot, then the creamy and opulent fruit note increases and ends in sweet sugar and grassy aromas.
    • Taste
      The first sip flows mildly and creamily through the mouth, yellow fruits appear, malty and slightly tart spicy wood tones come into their own. Grain flavors play with a pinch of cane sugar, grassy come into play against floral hints. At the moment I am licked by extremely long and oily streaks on the glass wall, the texture of this filling is impressive. Chubby warmth arises from dark apricots and mirabelle plums, a bitter stick sticks to the palate of yellow fruits and tart wooden elements. The floral and grassy basic tones blur the taste and aftertaste.
    • Finish
      The dark fruit flavors stick voluminously and powerfully on the palate, I also reflect malt and cereals in the aftertaste. Meadow herbs and grass refresh the aftertaste, velvety and creamy the flavors then fade away relatively quickly. Hazelnuts and creamy wooden elements are minimal.

    N: Again clear hints of cocoa and coffee, but the sweetness and fruit is more subtle here, but the tart notes are dominant. Alcohol tickles the nose slightly, not massively but noticeably.
    M: surprisingly sweet, after the nose was quite tart. Honey, caramel, shortbread, with hazelnut, kaba, milk chocolate and plum roaster. Lots of oak flavor: cinnamon, clove. Somehow that comes unexpectedly and I like it quite well.
    A: sweet at first, but then tart again. The oak is getting through more and more
    Tip: Sherry, Speyside, 54%, 17 years, tasty 88 points

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Fruity, sawdust, wood and more dust. But I find it rather nice. There is also marzipan, pineapple and marshmallows in here!

    Taste:
    Sweet, marzipan, fresh wood but also sawdust. Tropical fruit. Ginger. Again pineapple. Some pickles. It needs a bit of water tough.

    Body:
    Full and creamy

    Finish:
    medium. Woody, again marzipan and freshly cutted wood.

    Price:
    Current WB price is over € 250 which is at least two times to much.

    Presentation:
    Don't know this was a sample
