  1. Gloin scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The smell demands to smell more and more and to discover more and new aromas, yet everything is so closely connected that it is not easy to discern single notes in the harmonious whole.

    In the mouth, the aromas become clearer, a little to the detriment of diversity. But what stays is fine, a nice mix of maturity and freshness.

    In the finish, the thirty years let the muscles play a bit and show the hidden power without contradicting the overall picture

    The long shelf life has done its job and created a complex whisky. The whisky demands full attention, he gets that, one is rewarded with a nice story.
    • Nose
      Sweet juice oranges, lime, very gentle, no pungency or alcohol, some mint, a touch of woodruff, in the background, however, darker notes, raisins, wild strawberry, raspberry, these fruit notes are discreet, but perceptible, everything seems mature and closely interwoven, single notes are hard to spot, dry red wine, some oak, a trace of vanilla
    • Taste
      Soft body, noticeable onset, it shows in contrast to the smell a slight sharpness on the tongue. Again shows orange, now bitter, garden herbs, removed lemon, brown sugar, the fruity note of a mild red wine vinegar, bread crust, the red fruits are less pronounced, only remotely perceptible.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the whisky is initially sweeter again, but then show significant oak notes, but without excessive bitterness, dark bread crust, a little chocolate, orange, beer, mellow apple, long

    hmmm ... I am undecided. In the nose, the finish kills everything else. The taste is great again and the finish so-so. Any mix of bitterness and sweetness. Not really my case, but not bad either.
