I know this note will be rather useless, but I used to like this packaging… Colour: gold. Nose: ooh, this is rather brilliant. Subtler than contemporary versions, perhaps not as impressive as earlier ones (those square/rectangular bottles…), full of menthol, spearmint, wulong tea, cough medicine… What I find remarkable here is that there aren’t any raisins. Mouth: really very good, mentholy and with dried fruits, papayas, perhaps even mangos… Really, wow! Finish: rather long, orange-y and mentholy, with a rather medicinal aftertaste. Comments: a good example of perfect bottle aging. In no way whatsoever was this bottle this perfect twelve years ago. Which will remind us of good old Professor Saintsbury, who used to cellar his whiskies as if they were wine. I’m about to believe that he may have had something… (come on S., as if we weren’t in the know already)…
