  1. fgg scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      88 88
      Fruity, just like the youngsters from this series, but much heavier, more complex. Where initially the apples predominated, now it is the pear. Some wood tones, some wax. Nice nose!
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sweet. Honey. Burnt sugar. Caramel. The fruit is on the back of the tongue: apple in particular, but also pear. His low ABV takes something away from his career.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Short to medium. Bitter sweet with a small sharp edge of pepper.

    In general, better 15ki but not much. Considering the qualitative leap in development from 12 to 15
    • Nose
      Aroma: Noble oak. A bit of malt and vanilla with honey. Polish apples background (red). In general, a logical continuation of 15ki.
    • Taste
      Taste: Oak sherry with pepper. Apple and citrus marmalade.
    • Finish
      Finish: Marmalade "slices" (lemon, grapefruit and orange). More saturated and longer than 15k.

    [November, 2014]  As the first edition of this 18 year old from 2012 was spoiled with sulphur I had a tasting sip before buying this bottle for 61 Euro in October, 2014.  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 85.  My notes state an easy drinkable dram (but not more)...
