The nose is still quite closed and a little bit underwhelming but many reviewers have written that it needs time and my bottle has just been opened so it will probably be upgraded later on. For now, a very positive first impression. A little gem if you ask me, even better than the highly praised Flaming Heart CB.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Открытый, насыщенный, обработанная древесина, мебельный лак, тёплая древесная пыль, лёгкие нотки яблочного сока, сладкие сухофрукты, слабые медовые мотивы.

Taste
Сладкий, перечный, пряный дуб, лак, цедра лимона, сливки, варёная сгущёнка, сухофрукты.


Finish

Пряное, имбирь, цедра лайма, апельсина; дубовая горчинка, сливочная сладость, жжёные сухари, помадка.

Comments
Неширокий диапазон составляющих компенсируется глубиной и степенью проработки, очень приятно, гармонично, по тонкости подхода и вниманию к мелочам напоминает лучшие японские бленды.

Retasted half of my sample after at least a year of aeration : this dram most definitely takes a bit of breathing very well ;-) Others have already mentioned that. The nose is more expressive than before, especially. A very good dram, and interesting moreover.

It's not bad - don't get me wrong - but it's over-priced for what it is, essentially a refill sherry Glen Ord ...

 Komplex, reichhaltig, leicht rauchig.  süßer sherry und konzentrierte florale Aromen verbinden sich mit tiefer Demerara Süße, Cacao und einem leichteren Charakter von cremiger Kokosnuß. Ein einladendes Aroma, fett und körpervoll am Gaumen mit einem langen rauchig-süßen finish.

Old gold
Nose

Deep with hazelnuts and liquorice. Peat, peppery and a hint of sherry. Old highland profile.

Taste

Oaky, peat, spicy, vanilla, nutmeg, almonds.

Finish

Dry, peat, salt, liquorice, pepper.

The peppery gimmick reminds me of Talisker and this is without any doubts high quality whisky.
