- Very creamy and fruity, fruit compote, some tropical fruits, yellow fruits, cooked pear and apple, delicious
- Very fruity and balanced - dangerously drinkable and enjoyable - fantastic!
Indeed, plenty of apples and pears, very fresh, some vanilla notes, creme brulee, spices, white pepper, overripe bananas, fine oaky notes - great!
Wow, so creamy, fruity and sirupy - where are the 55% abv? Full of apples, pears, peaches, apricots all preserved in sirup, good sweetness, spices, really very shy notes of oak wood only - excellent!
Long, warm, fruity, sweet - not even any grapefruits around
- He has matured wonderfully over the 40 years without the barrel becoming too dominant. The power he has retained and still not too spicy! Very beautiful.
55% are a decent force. But alcoholic notes in the nose? No, no. At most, each time shortly after panning, but that's logical. Immediately after pouring still fresh with citrus flavors. But after a few seconds, this whisky plays its cards, an old age, a good barrel! Very set aromas, is this leather? No, maybe a bit exaggerated, but it goes in that direction. Add some bananas and other sweet tropical fruits.
Wow this start is then huge. Here, the 55% take their toll, but they provide a wonderful cargo of tropical fruits. A minimal saltiness. Furthermore banana and persimmon comes to it.
He comes without bitterness, but the influence of the barrel is here (very positively meant) not to be overlooked. Very creamy, so if chocolate, then pure white chocolate. Very cute. Drinkable. Not modern, but fresh, green oak. This lasts wonderfully long, so you still want to let your tongue pass through your mouth later.
- Mmmmhhh.... what a dram! My preferred style of whisky, if I was forced to name one! Good distillate (can you say Glenf....as?), good wood, and time. Loads of it. Decades! The result is a thick, syrupy, complex, dram with not too much wood (hooray!) and an intense tropical fruitiness. Very good indeed, with the only downside being an ever so slightly weaker finish.

Start off with boiled sour berries with citrus peels, big and
penetrating strength evolved around green apple and cinnamon orange. As
it breath overtimes, the floral notes come fore with whiff of fine aged
tobacco leaf, a good RyJ or Cohiba,. Mossy, earthy and intensity build
up, waves of liquorice orange candy, chocolate and banana with doses of crushed white peppers. P- Some spiky oak lurking in a good way, powerful and solid as
anticipated. Much complex with depth compared to the older 43YO
sibling. Well integrated of banana, compote of berries, citrus, some
chocolate, with peppery that hold up so well and elegantly that you just
can't stop sipping it.
F- Long, velvet with excellent
strength, warming with fine spiciness and lovely banana. Ya, a dram that
will make you go banana indeed.
— at Home.

Nose: fruit gum starts in the nose - Haribo Tutti Frutti, provided with a fine, filigree and salty spice. Sweet limes, tangerines, delicately salty lemon, vanilla yoghurt, sweet cream and sliced honey melon with mango. After prolonged breathing, a touch of wet sheepskin is added.
Taste: Powerful, spicy and full-bodied character. Hot spice of chili and cayenne pepper - with ripe apples, apricots, peaches, lemon, vanilla bars, natural yoghurt with avocados. Absolute class! The pepper sharpness remains until the finish.
Finish: Long - spicy - peppery and provided with emerging, discreet wood. Fresh, but also dull and very harmonious. Always accompanied by a fantastic spice.
Note: The taste is certainly 92+, in the finish it's rather the 92-.
