  1. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    An old, rich in tradition, but not so robust blend. Do not go in the direction of Haig, nor is it à la Vat69. No, he is milder, lighter, but strong in character. He should be enjoyed pure.
    • Nose
      Soft grain mixes with fine sherry tones, some foliage & mild spices. In the background a touch of mild Islay whiskey. Adding water, malt becomes clear. The grainy notes fade away, adding dusty (old?) Cocoa flour and a few drops of diluted lemon juice.
    • Taste
      Open & clear. A slight hardness in the taste. Add chili and a touch of creamy fruit. An idea of ​​a hunch (less goes barely ...) of smoke, some sherry and always chili. Water conjures a slight astringency & a slight tingle on the tongue; along with very light peat smoke and a felt highland-like seasoning.
    • Finish
      Some malt & grain in the finish. A medium-strong chili sharpness duels with grainiger mildness. Under the influence of water, chili turns white, dry pepper and piquant-sweet notes into the palate.
