- Lovely, elegant sherried profile -sweet, aromatic and fruity with a background mocha note that lingers into the finish.
- Nice calm sherry profile. If I hadn't tapped 1st fill.
I like it pretty much.
Nice full nose. Vanilla, light fruits, cookie dough, malt, cereals, beautiful roasted aromas play a role.
Grain, vanilla, nice and sweet, alcohol is noticeable a bit burning despite 43%, light / citrus fruits.
- Remarkable "oldish" profile.
Fruity but also tobacco, mineral oils, wallnut peel and some metallic notes.
Good dram for the money.
- N- Light and gentle. Vanilla and fresh baked bread. Citrus and estery. Green tobacco and cola lurking at the background.
P- Spicy entry and dry, follow by subtle sweet, honey and dried peaches emerge and lasts for long time.
F- Medium-long, smooth. Balance dried fruity flavors with spiciness take center stage.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
A little sooty. Coal smoke. Coins. Fudge. Raisins. Sweet sherry notes.
Lots of fudge, butterscotch. Dry sherry. Some fresh wood notes. Soot.
Not long. Sherry. A little drying.
- Tasting Notes by WhiskyFun.com (december 1, 2015):
Nose: oh, shoe polish! Green tobacco leaves! Mineral riesling! Cough syrup! One style that we enjoy a lot at WF towers, even if this came unexpected. 2002? Are they sure that wasn’t 1952?
Mouth: perhaps a little drying, but this surely isn’t modern. Where else, except in Campbeltown, would you find some salted sweet mustard and this much tobacco? Curiously un-round, but very perfect – if you like this super-old style. Even older than the label.
Finish: long, sooty, fino-ish. Fried bacon and chocolate.
Comments: a surprise, I had thought this baby would be jammy and honeyed. Ha, preconceptions…
