Color
Old gold
Nose

jede Menge helle Früchte, die einem förmlich ins Gesicht springen, vor allem Zitrone, Grapefruit, Limone, Maracuja, dazu Gewürze wie Zimt und Nelken und leicht blumig, frisch geschnittenes Gras

Taste

wieder jede Menge Zitrusfrüchte, dazu Maracuja, Aprikose, Banane, Vanille, und frische grüne Kräuter, wie Zitronenmelisse, Zitronengras, auch Lavendel und Süßholz, weich, leichte harmonische Schärfe von Nelken und Zimt

Finish

sehr zitronig frisch, mit aufsteigendem Eukalyptus, süß, der Abgang hält sich ewig und ist noch am nächsten Morgen wie frisch in der Nase präsent - ein Wahnsinnsaroma!

Comments

Einer der besten 7x-er Speysider, die ich bisher im Glas hatte!

Gin clear
Nose

Very fine nose on fruits and herbs

Taste

Wonderfully clear and brillant citric fruitbomb, tangeriny, with smooth spices and herbs like lemon grass and lemon balm; 2-3 drops of water make it perfect

Finish

Extremely long on citric fruits and eucalyptus

Comments

Absolutely lovely, lively, fascinating, fruity and gorgeous - nearly perfect in every way.

Mr.Sandwich gave this whisky 92 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Riecht sehr lecker nach Fino-Süße gepaart mit exotischen Fruchtdrops - durch das Fass leicht gewürzt und abgerundet.  Mit ein paar Tropfen Wasser kommen die Aromen noch schöner zum Vorscheinen.


Taste

Den hohen ABV von 52% empfinde ich als störend - er verdeckt die Aromen.   Mit Wasser:   Viel besser !  Kann jetzt locker mit den anderen Speyside-Fino-Cask-Abfüllungen mithalten. Wunderbarer Fruchtmix mit Fino-Süße im Vordergrund und einer gut abgestimmten Kräuter/Gewürzmischung.  Ausgewogen - ohne Brennen und Bitterkeit.



Finish

Der Abgang ist lang - Süße und Bitterkeit wechseln sich ab.  Mit Wasser verschwindet die Bitterkeit größtenteils und der Abgang ist angenehm weich und rund.


Comments

Den Alkoholgehalt habe ich mit einem Alkoholmeter auf ~ 47 % gesetzt. So hat sich das anfangs doch recht enttäuschende Ergebnis dochnoch zum Positiven entwickelt und der Flascheninhalt hat sich erhöht.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Resinous, herbs, aged olives, sappy trees, mossy forest, old tin boxes, ripe apricots, peaches and mangos, stewed tropical fruits.

Taste

Wow! Everything from the nose but vibrant plus some citric notes. More fresh tropical fruits and some spicies as well. Fruity and floral green tea.

Finish

Very long, mellowed,sweet and complex.

Comments

An excellent and complex whisky that at 43 years old remains vibrant on the mouth and wonderfully sappy and mossy on the nose.

(however it misses the je ne sai quoi factor to score it even higher)

Old gold
Nose

Vanille et vernis, une combinaison qui évoque certains vieux grains, étonnamment. Très parfumé. Fondu et mielleux à l'extrême. Ah ! Voilà les épices qui le rangent définitivement dans la catégorie des malts.

Avec un peu d'eau, la vanille prend l'ascendant. Quelle richesse, quelle complexité. Ce boisé évoquant un bourbon.

Taste

Fruité complexe, miel, fruits cuits. Juteux et épicé.

L'ajout d'eau le rend plus crémeux, plus juteux, plus soyeux et plus fluide. Epices douces.

Finish

Les épices à nouveau, dans la continuité de la bouche de façon trèèèèès appuyée et trèèèès profonde mais à la fois délicat et soyeux.

Avec un peu d'eau, un soupçon de coco et de banane.

Comments

C'est magnifique.

Enthousiasme 5/5

Whisky n°1331

Dram Dracula gave this whisky 91 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Bright orange/lemon, pomelo, sugar cane, dried mango, cotton candy, ginger, herbal tea with honey

Taste

Myriads of little flavors, some fruits, but not as much as expected from the nose, lots of spice (actually numbs my tongue a bit).. with water, it becomes a bit smoother with a bit less spice.

Finish

Long, still pretty spicy, a bit of an oaky ending -- it is 43 years after all. 

Comments

The palate wasn't as fruity as I would like and it's a bit too spicy for it to be directly pleasurable. All-in-all though, this is terrific. Everyone says this is most likely a Glenfarclas. I'm not going to argue against that.
