    Tasting Notes: Nose: Before my time as a whiskey connoisseur, I've gained quite a lot of experience with wines, although there too the emphasis has been on older years. And there are these old German Rieslings, which may have been lying in the cellar for a little too long, perhaps late 1970s readings or readings, which have such a very typical overripe fruit aroma, plus some yeast, a musty cellar and damp foliage. And it is exactly this aroma that exudes this old blend, only that it has a little more alcohol than an old wine. It is mossy, cheesy, with some lactic acid, vanilla, sour fruit, mint and very fine smoke. Slightly oblique, but quite interesting. Mouth: Very soft, surprisingly sweet, but also with peppery pungency. It appears much fresher here than in the aroma, showing relatively clear fruit notes, apricots, bananas, grapes, but also vanilla, moss, nut and brittle. The alcohol is very well integrated and not really perceptible. Finish: Mitellang, grassy, ​​earthy and altogether very mild.
    Conclusion: As always, when I try such an old blend, I realize how much better they are than the ones on the market today. Nevertheless, here has one or the other strange note in the aroma, which has not addressed me one hundred percent. That's how he really liked me, but I've already had a lot more fun with some other blends from that time.

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=283 Color: full gold Nose: This is where the sherry barrel comes into its own. Leather, salt, earth and a delicate'farmy touch' of moist hay combined with aromas of orange peel Taste: Starting soft and spicy; slightly hot with salt, pepper and chili. Now creamy honey notes, caramel cream, long full herbal tea and hints of old paper, licorice and oak. Finish: Rather short - fading with notes of tea, paper, wood and dry herbs. The remaining, slightly sweet notes, are up to the end. 87 points N: 86P / G: 89P / F: 87P

    My version stated on the label: 30 degrees under proof = 100 proof/57% minus 30 = 70 proof/40%.
    N: Classic old blended nose, as so many are - but within that ‘classic’ lies a wealth of treasure not now found in modern B&W.
    T: Freshest blend so far today with a bitter edge.
    F: Does its best to hang on in there.
    C: Great quality old blend.
