Well, for what is on the label, the price is actually and fortunately quite low. The idea of only marrying malt and no grain whiskeys is of course very praiseworthy. This, but also - I guess - especially the fact that it was completely out of print for several years, is responsible for its popularity, not the taste.
However, mostly very, very "worn out" barrels were used here. I almost hate to say it, but I honestly prefer the "Black Label".
At the beginning, the alcohol is very clearly perceptible and determines the aroma. As the warmth increases, it gets better. Fruit notes follow: apple, orange, lemon, pear, delicate oak spice and malt.
Watery and slightly unbalanced. The alcohol is not well integrated and has a rather unpleasant spiciness.
Lemon, malt, wrinkled apples, vanilla, tannins.
Medium length. What remains is a rather unpleasant bitterness, along with a little vanilla and a hint of apple.
