    Beautiful whisky with beautiful nuances. No blows in your face but subtle character traits.
    • Nose
      Beautiful, rich, but subtle nose. Fruity, some apple, banana. Some tropical fruit. Something spicy. Something was-like.
    • Taste
      A soft-bitter taste, spicy, but also fruity. Many different nuances, rich, mild, subtle.
    • Finish
      Slight creamy finish, which will stick for a while.

    Nose nice and soft and fruity, a bit of vanilla pudding, at the same time something a little fresh (green apple), soft wood tones, toasted (or slightly burned toasting) bread, ripe pear, there also seems to be a little bit of mustard in the background Taste very fruity, a bit of white wine, again a bit of wood, a bit floral, a bit spicy (pepper) Finish slightly dry, slightly oak, maybe even a little bit bitter, in addition to a pleasant sweetie

    What a grand Glen Elgin! Wait… what? Only 145 EUR for a bottle? That is a joke, right? You are coming home with me!
    • Nose
      Wonderful nose, a bit waxy and old school, on pineapple and Seville oranges. Some sweet butter. I am transported to the floor of old and rare books in the local libray. Dusty, grassy, but very inviting. Some heather and wood shavings. Unripe banana. Something mentholated and some nuts. This is pretty complex.
    • Taste
      It is silky soft on the palate. Sweet and bitter at the same time, with a spiciness that offers depth. The fruit of the nose returned, while the menthol becomes mint tea. Citrus kicks in. This is well balanced indeed. The oak is fully under control.
    • Finish
      The finish is wonderfully long and spicy, bittersweet until the death, when suddenly – unless I am dreaming – a surprisingly salty element emerges.
