Tasting notes
Nose: This is fruity and floral. At first there’s a mix of fruity red apples cola and honey. It’s quite floral and fresh. A hint of vanilla and butterscotch is somewhat hiding in the background. It becomes more musty and dark with time in the glass and it shows its age quite clearly. This is a nice nose with a lot to offer.

Mouth: It starts out with a fruitiness with ripe apples which sits together with sweet butterscotch, vanilla and honey. A tiny hint of chili spicessalted caramel. A slightly bitter oakiness is detectable in the back, the age is once again coming through with a dusty old note in the center.

Finish: The sweetness continues and the whole thing is very mild. It’s butterscotch, vanilla and honey mixed with fresh fruits, slightly bitter dry oak mixed with the cola note. The finish shows the age, with remembrance of dusty bookshelves and old books but it’s a bit too mild to really give an impression. This is a very good whisky. Especially for people who wants to experience what age does to a whisky.
