    Astonishing that it is even smoother and easier drinkable than the sister cask 1966 441 despite its higher abv. Adding water is not really necessary but opens up the aromas to a burning fire that is then extinguished by a nice sweetness.
    • Nose
      Intensive and fruity oak wood, some citrusy and orange peeling with a little malty sweetness and faint touch of vanilla.
    • Taste
      Superb fruity notes about oranges, apricots, pineapples and some other. It is actually punchy but somehow it does not really burn due to its fruity sweetness and oily wood notes.
    • Finish
      Medium long with the fruity sweetness and the oak wood coming out more.
