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.

sagara-kun gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Old gold
Nose
Nez assez fondu.
Céréaes et pas mal de miel. Un peu de peinture et de solvant.
On s'ouvre ensuite sur une bonne dose de cuir, et un peu de bois.
Ensuite seulement arrivent quelques fruits, abricots et orange en tête.
Un très léger voile d'eucalyptus.

Taste
En bouche, beaucoup plus fruité, avec des fruits rouges se rajoutant à ceux du nez.
Une bonne dose de sel.
Des épices (canelle) et toujours du cuir et du copeau de bois.

Finish
Finale moyennement longue, qui fait vraiment vieux whisky.
De la poussière, du sherry (fruits rouges, cuir, bois)
Comments
Bouteille à moitié vide. De mémoire, était plus fruité au nez à l'ouverture, et plus axé sherry. On retrouve tout de même certains marqueurs caractéristiques.
En tout cas c'est très bon. Surtout en bouche et finale pour moi.

N- Open up with refine sherry fruits of prunes, ripe plum and dried hawthorns. Well integrated caramel sweetness with hint of mineral, saline and earthiness. Pleasant and mellow.

P- Delicious sweet spice, dark fruits and dried peels, light peppery emerge at the tail, medium texture.

F- Medium, silky smooth and complex. Drifts of monk fruit and herbal notes with citrus zest. Restrained spiciness coating. Pleasant heat of ginger at the back of throat, warming.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Eiling Lim's official tasting notes:

It contains Old Highland and Speyside malts from the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s that are vatted together in a sherry cask to produce a smooth and old-style whisky lingering experience.

Colour: Deep Golden

On the nose: A soft touch of oloroso sherry, honey, warm toasted brioche, fresh, fine leather, warm cooked fruits, eucalyptus, soft hints of nutmeg, chrysanthemum, fine aged malt, aromas are well interwoven, almost no alcohol detected in the nose.

On the palate: It starts with a very smooth and gentle sweetness, and then the spiciness kicks in, fine soft oak, gentle oloroso dryness, balanced whisky that tempts you to take a second glass with a lingering finish.
