Whisky Reviews for Blended Malt Older Than Old EL

- I recommend to those opening a new bottle, finish it in a month. My bottle half full left is out of alcohol, just regular juice. Completely oxidized.
- One I have tried on several occasions. I have always enjoyed it. It’s actually a whisky I would pour for anyone. I would actually question anyone who says this is bad. The price and contents are the only real debate.
Rum and raisin, dunnage, dusty, creamy, vanilla ice cream, soft allspice
Buttery, mouthcoating, more rum and raisin ice cream, all spice, soft old oak.
Long, mouthcoating, peaches stewed in turbinado sugar, soft ginger, barrel smoke, earthen. Great balance. Wonderful finish.
When I open the sample, I get a delicate, fine smoke note. It starts well.
The first thing I find in the glass itself is an adhesive note. Then dry wood and some wood wax. Then a dusty, old aroma prevails. Followed by brown sugar and orange. I also think I smell some cinnamon. In addition dried fruit and a light perfume note. If the colleague gets some time in the glass, the roasted aromas will prevail. For me it has something of toasted bread with butter. More floral aromas and yeast dough now come from the background. A hint of mint.
Soft start. Then this flag smoke prevails. Add a pinch of ginger hotness. Again this impression of dry wood and nutty bitterness. The sweetness takes a back seat. The taste of the fruit goes more in the fermented direction. Tastes better than the nose promised. Apricots, some peach and sour plums. There is also a slightly berry taste. Just like some liquorice.
Rather long. Spicy with set sweetness. Then it gets butterier.
- A beautiful blend with clear age notes, ripe, candied fruit and root vegetables, leather, the oak is present without being slain, waxy, honey, hints of sherry. But still a rather elegant malt, which unfortunately does not reveal its age on the label, but nevertheless shows here.
- Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Well balanced dram.
- Definitely not outstanding, and doesn't taste older than old! The bottler hypes this up way too much, but the price is reasonable. It's young and old fighting with each other, and the young wins! But regardless, I still enjoyed drinking it it because it's like a chameleon with many different sides. My guess is it is a blended malt of polarizing styles, including sherry, smoke/peat, and of course old and young.
- Bottle half empty. From memory, was more fruity on the nose at the opening, and more focused sherry. We still find some characteristic markers. In any case it's very good. Especially in the mouth and final for me.
Nose melted enough. Cereal and a lot of honey. A little paint and solvent. We then open on a good dose of leather, and a little wood. Then only arrive some fruits, apricots and orange in mind. A very light veil of eucalyptus.
In the mouth, much more fruity, with red fruits adding to those of the nose. A good dose of salt. Spices (cinnamon) and always leather and wood chips.
Final moderately long, which is really old whiskey. Dust, sherry (red fruits, leather, wood)
