    [April, 2018]  A find in a dark corner of my cellar and I can not resist to open it on the spot.  I bought this very old bottle of vatted malts for 19 Euro in October, 2004.

    The colour is yellow gold and the texture shows small tears with medium fast legs.  The nose offers a fine autumn floral and herbal profile with some home-grown fruits and spices.  Not too bad (an Aussie would say).  The dram arrives warming and nicely coating in the mouth with no distracting moments.  The taste is barley sugary sweet with fruity, floral and spicy flavours.  Not overly complex but very enjoyable.  The finish is rather short and a little drying (sandy).  Water is not needed.

    This is a fine example of an old-style whisky that was created to fit just one purpose:  Enjoy a delicate dram in good company...

    I like this, far too easy to drink with a nice spice note, worth looking out for at auctions.

      This is older you can tell by the resinous, malty, pine sap, varnish and sherry profile, it is slightly musty.
      The fruit then arrives in the shape of mango, apple peel and a little grapefruit.
      This has a nice nose

      Creamy & malty with no rough edges but not tired or weak at 40% which is a great bonus.
      It is quite light, slightly yeasty with a few spices thrown in and the fruit that the nose suggested is on the palate and in time the spice element grows
    • Finish

      Longer than I was expecting remaining spicy to the end
