The alcohol strength of 43% is perfect to smell, because nothing stings and you can fully indulge in the variety of flavors.
This old malt in the glass is very fragrant, almost perfume-like, all the flavors are very closely interwoven.
Overripe pear, sweet nectarines and peaches combine with baked raisins. Caramel and a hint of tobacco mix with floral notes such as honey and herbs. A pleasant maltiness rounds off the entire aroma.
It is a real experience!
He lies sweetly and oily on the tongue with a light tingling of herbal honey and oranges. Would he like a few percent alcohol better? No, this malt was not composed for drinkers of young and strong whiskys, this old man is for connoisseurs and a real gentleman. With an astringent mouthfeel on a hint of violet, one is accompanied in the finish.
The aroma symphony continues for a long time. The actors are licorice, milk chocolate and a delicate fruitiness that linger on the tongue.
A really great whisky, but you have to do something to do it justice. It invites you to indulge and dream and if you like, it is a very good companion through a quiet and long evening.
