Nose: a very grainy and malty attack with quite some hot caramel and distant whiffs or wax polish, eucalyptus, resin…
Very nice! It develops on rum and raisins, dried oranges, old rancio.It makes me think of some super-ultra-premium blends. Gets perhaps just a little
hot, not unlike some rums again,but calms down after a few minutes, getting rather flowery and gaining
quite some freshness. Not overly complex but hugely enjoyable.
quite nervous but a little thin, alas, with lots of alcohol and rummy/raisiny notes but not much else, except quite some dried fruits and lotsof malt. What’s more, the finish isn’t too long and quite coffeeish. In short, another old one that’s got a stunning nose but that doesn’t deliver
on the palate. Yes, just like some high-end blends (but don’t
blenders work using their nose alone?)
84 points, still.
