The next bargain will be a house whisky.
Wow, the nose is (for me) overwhelming. The last time I had something in the glass (also of the color) was a Glen Elgin 1997 GM. At first I was just happy. I do not want to lose myself in Klein Klein with nouns. This nose is only for the special, who can appreciate that. Fruit and Floral notes of the extra class! What's going on ! So cool. I have to open the 04.1 too !! Done deal.
Now you need 1. a lot of time, 2. some water, 3. a big one and in between a very small sip.
Who takes the time here spends the evening in the whisky sky. A mouthfeel made to measure and everything very harmoniously intertwined. Spicy, sweet, sour, malty, leathery, what do I know what. Thanks to Bruichladdich !!
Very long! Very balanced with everything your heart desires. Spicy Christmas biscuits with floral notes to measure. Peppery malty and everything so mature. Hammer!
