    Golden & Elegant
    It's golden because of its color.
    But elegance is something else.
    Which shouldn't mean that it's a bad whisky.
    It just doesn't keep what the name and age promises.

    N: Soft-smoked lavender, thin dirty mechanical/sooty sweet jammy quince jelly,… Any briny ex-bourbon cask resinousness as dropped off from this particular bottle opened many years ago.

    T&F: Really soft and lacking in body with a deep/faint sootiness, spent [one-use BBQ] charcoal,.. more [briny] lavender, and with a deep yet distant mineral vegetal conclusion.

    C: Despite being a tired bottle, the story remains [as it has in recent years since] the same – I’m left wanting for more.

      Medium long, warm
