    [February, 2005]  I had this dram during an Jim McEwan tasting at Rolandsbogen.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  I took no further notes.

    Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan:

    Colour: Gleaming gold.

    Body: Beautiful, silky-smooth mouth-feel with a syrup-like viscosity. Absolutely delectable.

    Nose: Soft delicate aromas of aniseed, marzipan, soft kiwi fruit, peach melba and baked pear. Then the floral notes drift in; pink roses and cherry blossom. Add to that the sweetness of nougat and soft caramel plus mature oak, all gently caressing the senses. It´s almost olfactory overload. A spectacular bouquet !!

    Palate: No heat on the palate, just the flavour of rich, warm, oaky toffee with a texture like satin, backed up by layers of fruit yoghurt, carnation milk and sweet toasted cereal. What you would expect from one of Scotland´s foremost distillers. Absolute enchantment.

    Finish: Seems to linger endlessly, not wishing to leave the company and when it does the oaky warmth of this mature masterpiece has the final say. Utterly unforgettable.
