Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    Colour: amber.

    Nose: once again we’re within the same style as with the 1982 and 1981, although this one seems to be a tad more polished and a little less sherried. Very obvious notes of tangerine liqueur (Madarine Impériale). It seems that this is great but at 63% abv, let’s not take chances by nosing it too deeply…

    With water: high viscimetric index! ;-). Right, right, this one is the closest to the greatest Scotches within the bunch, and I can’t help thinking of a great old HP.

    Mouth (neat): once again, we’re in the same territories, although this seems to a little more on the oaky side… Or maybe not, hard to say at 63%. Burns your throat as soon as you ingest more than half a drop.

    With water: exceptional, just exceptional. Time to call the anti-maltoporn brigade if you please…

    Finish: wow. 

    Comments: no whisky, pure sin – and big cojones. Not very far from the stunning 1967 for LMdW and TWE… As for the price - around £130, well, it may let a few Scots die of shame.  SGP:662 - 94 points.
