Tasting Notes
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Amber - Nose: Amazingly light with gently perfumed apricot fruitiness alongside hints of creamy toffee and a distinct suggestion of ancient wax seal on parchment. There are also sauteed raisins with apple. - Palate: slightly dry and very mouth-filling. There's creamy toffee served on a bed of Alpine flora with some quite amazing gentle smokiness. Creamy vanilla or even crème caramel leads into the very long finish. - Finish: Very long, delightfully long with a creamy fruitiness. - Overall Impression: This is amazingly light and delicate, especially considering its age. A "Great" by a country mile in my book, in fact the best whisky I've yet tried in 2012.
Oliver KlimekColour: Bright amber - Nose: Apples, raisins, dried apricots, butterscotch, a waxed wood table with a vase of flowers, whiffs of a dusty old cupboard and a wee bit of smoke. - Palate: A gentle but very notiecable smokiness wraps around a rich fruit cocktail, and yes it is sprinkled with rose petals. Not very sweet but immensely flavourful. Where is the wood? - Finish: Endless, fruity, slightly dry and slightly smoky. - Overall: Simply magnificent. Most of these bottles are offered to investors. But anyone buying this bottle to increase their wealth by a few bucks misses out on a once-in-a-liftetime opportunity. If you can afford this whisky, please drink it!
