- in the old days, everything was b ...
very clear direct aromas
Cherries and pear, floral vanilla, a wee bit of smoke with water.
Waxy mouthfeel, cream, clover, a sweet oakiness presence all along the way.
Toasted malt and honey coats your mouth, you feel sticky long afterwards.
- A very delicious part, also easy-drinking, but pretty full in the mouth and what is becoming rarer: A great finish that calls right after the next sip. The nose could be a bit more succinct.
Almonds, white chocolate, clear light malt, light honey, light citrus notes, further back a little pear, a little coconut and peach, a little something grassy, is now not right in the nose, you have to tickle a bit
Nice round and pleasant, a honey and malt sweetness rise first, then comes a little bit slightly black pepper, but very pleasant and then sherryanklänge, orange, apricot, peach, much more than in the nose and slowly spreading, candied red apple, a little hay and grasses in the background but only light, thyme, cotton candy and honey pot, this beautiful crunchy malt back out, in between citrus flashes
Lively, lots of acidity of lemon, grapefruit and some orange, also green apple, light malt and some honey, medium to long
Wonderfully balanced with a fruity citrus note, orange-flavored shower sticks, sparkling seafood, vanilla, delicate hints of sherry and oak.
Medium heavy, salty, slightly sherry tonic followed by a grassy-herbaceous development, hazelnuts, oak and fine spices.
Long, salted nuts.
Minty & eucalyptus upfront. Soft and lightly pungent. Let the dram
breath in the glass for a while, hay and wet tree branches emerged,
Palate:- A shock. Don't taste how it smell like. Very
astringent and bold. Non spicy but very hot, mouth-full with gingery
spice, the heats building up and up. Eye watering stuff.
Finish:- Smooth and long finish. Dry and hot throughout, complex. A touch floral. — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

tasted 2015-04-30 @ home:
Nosing: Fenolish, partly reminiscent of nail polish in the background, otherwise sweet herbs. Taste: fiery fruit on, longer burner, with strong sweetness, clear Bourbon Cask in order, 78
