Moderator dram-drinker Tasting note
13 Jul 2017 11:52 pm
dram-drinker gave this whisky 95 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Intense, honey, sweet, exotic fruits, mango passion fruit, overripe bananas, hints of vanilla, but also some citrus fruits - really a mixed bag of fruits - great!

Taste

Punchy, but very oily and creamy, creme brulee, quinces, lemony, subtle sweetness, reluctant notes of oak wood (for 40 years) - excellent!

Finish

Medium long, warm, little bit more dry, peppery and zesty

Comments

It's very similar to the Speyside Region 1973 Good Vibes from TWA but a little sharper and more dry - on the other hand less sticky and more fruity. Well, this is actually like splitting hairs. It's fantastic anyways!

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Wonderful, fresh and sophisticated. Acacia honey and linden flower with a touch of mint.
Abundantly rich in fruits: banana, black currant, peach and melon. Verbena candy. Citruses.

Taste

Strong, oily and sweet. Exotic fruit essence. Especially mango, apricot, tangerine and banana.
Along with the slightly hot white pepper and ginger the oak comes nicely. Honey, wax and nutella.

Finish

Long, sweet, fruity, spicy, fresh, mentholic.

Comments

Awesome whisky! I'm sure that have the best 2% of I've been tasting.
In addition, it was in incredibly good price / value ratio.

A masterpiece of a Whisky. The best I had in my glass sofar and I tasted almost 500 Whiskies. I paid 400€ for it but it was worth every penny.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

This reminds me of older springbanks a little.

Grapefruit, apple, yellow plum and there is some peat not dissimilar to aged caol ila 

There is some cream and the peat grows in the glass.

Taste

Sweet, basically it tastes like alcoholic fruit gums there is very little else that needs saying. The peat is in the background it is a fruit salad  but all on white fruits.

Finish

Good length finishing on glazed fruit sweets

Comments

Fruit, fruit, and er more fruit.
