- It makes no sense to give ratings and describe impressions; too much has been lost over the years of storage
- Light, may be a little too airy.
But simple and no note that ruin everything.
Tasted from a bottle a very different little hair.
750mL & 43 ° GL
Apple, pear, dust, old book, quince, vanilla. A little wood, chocolate powder.
A bit light.
In the mouth we have especially obe, dust the old book, a little diesel.
Apple, pear and quince always.
Pretty watery and light, too.
Short final on the dust, the metal of the obe.
- Joa, rather disappointing, they're definitely producing more bodily stuff than back then, but it was definitely interesting and drinkable.
Dusty oldschool, apple rings, orange oil, fennel, old pages in between, a bit filigree in the body, herbal honey, banana chips, toffee, gets sweeter with vanilla
Savory with herbal notes, orange peel, bitter substances, leaves, old pages, malt, oak, clove, nutmeg, dried apple slices
Becomes mineral here, foliage, pebbles, book pages, fennel, short to medium long
- I was extremely positively surprised, I would not have expected so. A stark contrast to today's bottlings and I think with much more finesse. Sweet, fruity, balanced - beautiful! Only the slightly chemical touch on the palate prevents even better grading.
Krasser contrast to the bottlings of recent years. Intense lemon notes, green Haribo apple rings, light grape juice and some peat smoke. It all goes really well together, a wonderfully fruity and sweet aroma that gives the slight smoke a pleasant variety and depth.
Very sweet and again with really impressive intense fruit notes. The apple rings are still there, but unfortunately have a minimal artificial aftertaste. Honey, grapes, of course, the smoke - all there. Everything was very mild and pleasing.
Medium long, sweet, with subtle spiciness and a light smoke. The chemical note is now gone, it remains a slightly dry, slightly tart mouthfeel. The "old bottle flavor" comes here again to the best advantage.
- N- Opened up with vegetal, new paints, candy shop and solvent notes, underlay with dried fruit jars and nut oiliness. Followed by notable grilled pineapple and starfruit, along charred wood, Get savoury overtimes with smoked ham, egg-y and porridge, coated with distant bonfire. Breezy, mellow but pleasantly complex.
P- Sadly, a drop of strength here, surely no longer still a 43% after almost 40+ years sleeping in the bottle. Still, some goodies are left behind, nutmegs upfront with delicate new leather, earthy oriented with more grilled tropical fruits undertone.
F- Medium long, much tired liquid with slow strolling pace. Fat and oily, some white wine notes of Chablis, left with layer of dusty wood shaves on palate with vanilla on retro-breath. Should be good at optimum condition, but off balance as the strength have dropped.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- Extremely fun! And really nice on the top of that!
Strawberry jam (!), jelly, candied vanilla, tropical fruits. A nose that really pushes the limit. Very fun and to simplify it: this nose provides a very sweet sensation.
Very sweet, and the same notes are coming again. Especially the strawberry jam.
Finish is long, sweet. Strawberries, tropical fruits like papaya and passion fruit (candy, not that acidic).
