Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by WhiskyFun (Serge Valentin)

Not the first 1968 by the excellent TWA racing team.

Colour: light gold. Nose: we’re more or less in same territories after the Mo Or, even if this baby’s more dirty, buttery, vegetal and slightly musty/mushroomy at first nosing (all that in a good way, mind you!) After a few minutes, becomes geared toward many more fruits, especially cider apples, and broken branches and roots. Same touches of curry as in the Mo Or and maybe a little smoke. Leather.

Mouth: once again we’re pretty close to the Mo Or, this one having a firmer oakiness that imparts more grassy and spicy tones, all assets for sure. So more mint, maybe caraway seeds, nutmeg… But other than that, it’s the same fresh and even rather silky kind of fruitiness. No signs of over-aging whatsoever.

Finish: pretty long, honeyed and fruity, with pleasantly sharp spices imparting more oomph (fresh pepper?)

Comments: excellent, same score in my book. One could down litres of this as well ;-).

SGP:651 - 90 points.
