    Nose: Sublime. All that one is entitled to expect from a Speyside of this caliber is present. Candied figs, dried apricots, plum jam, old wood, encaustic, menthol and chocolate notes (After Eight!), Thuya root box, varnish, shoe polish ... We could smell it for hours without getting bored.

    Palate: Powerful, but surprisingly drinkable when you know the alcoholic strength of the beast. A lot of wood, certainly, but all silky tannins, no astringency or stiffness here. We find the superb complexity of the nose, as well as spices galore, cinnamon in the head, as well as clove. Something of an old rum too. With a little water, it's an incredible pleasure ... Censored.

    Finish: Very long, cocoa, with a return of menthol notes and a bit of bitter orange.

    Wonderful !! A very big malt !!

    Excellent. Complex, rich.
    • Nose
      Sherry is immediate and very expressive. Many fruits: plums, prunes, figs. Alcohol brings a lot of freshness but is still very slightly feel. Some notes of balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, leather, hints of apricot jam varnish, peppermint. It is very very complex and rich.
    • Taste
      What power ! and what texture. Alcohol well integrated. It is clearly woody, tannic. A lot of fresh orange and tangerine. The palate then evolves towards spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, and chocolate. Yum.
    • Finish
      Endless on a woody very slightly drying, cocoa.

  7. ALouis scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      What a nose, on a fruity sherry, raspberry and prune then comes the wax and old furniture, some notes of leather, chocolate, orange and some touches of wood smoke. A little minty in the background and slightly resinous. No aggressiveness of alcohol
    • Taste
      Alcohol is very well integrated, there is also right to the fruit, orange, raspberry and fig then chocolate, mint, spices and earthy notes / smoke from the wood. With a little water, superb more melted and balanced and you lose no aroma.
    • Finish
      endless or
