    Acceptable blend, it's not as this as expected for a blend with this Abv.
    • Nose

      Earthy notes, autumn forest. Some fruits, citrus, honey, a very little bonfire smoke in the background. Some glue as well.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Fruity and pepper, honey, earthy notes again. Caramel, a bit of laurel drop. Not very full of tastes, but at least not watery or thin.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Warming, some pepper, some sweet, honey. Still a hint of smoke, pretty short.

    nose unpleasant, something chemical, maybe detergent, I think it’s better not to work on it at all.
    The taste is better, a little sweet old grain.
    The finish is almost gone, but light and pleasant.
    For the 70s it is sad IMHO!
    In general, I think I came across a very unfortunate bottle that had been lying for a long time, so I don’t think so that it’s not so expressive and should be

  4. Cenarius scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    83/100 A very round and balanced blend, although the finish is a little too short. There are better blends of the time, but this is not to be despised here. The bottle was a lot of fun and was wonderfully tasty. very uncomplicated delicious drink
    • Nose
      Apricot jam, blossom honey, a little smoke
    • Taste
      slightly sour dried fruit, mainly apricot and a little bit smoke. reminds of a smoke caol ila. the taste can be compared with a white wine finish
    • Finish
      very short and dry. white wine stays in the mouth all over
