  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Bought from a Yahoo Japan action.

    Appearance: Deep amber-orange, slightly leggy and oily.

    Nose: Caramel, vanilla, oak, slight oxidation, raisin, light smoke, cinnamon, touch of cherry and ginger, gingerbread cookies, some old bottle effect going on for sure.

    Palate: Oxidation, caramel, toffee, raisins, minerals—possibly from the clay, light old smoke, malt sugar. Very smooth, well integrated. Some peach and apricot. Not quite as nice as the nose.

    Finish: Sugar, stone fruit, cinnamon spice, bit of booze. Peppery.

    Overall: Extremely good condition from this old ceramic bottle. Old bottle effect there, and also some minerality from the clay (probably a bit too much). Generally a nice malty dram from the 70s or 80s with a bit of strangeness added. The nose is excellent (86?), the palate much less so (78?)
