Tasting notes

Lion's | 19-01-2013


Colour: white wine.

Nose: very malty and caramelly at first nosing, developing on quite some smoky and waxy notes. Great whiffs of turpentine and eucalyptus leaves, wet stone and iron. Notes of grapefruit juice, almond milk and marzipan, old books, getting more and more mineral like some Rieslings. Extremely enjoyable, certainly much less middle-of-the-road than the more recent bottlings. Ah, also some roasted peanuts… Really beautiful, a great surprise! Some similarities with the new 22 yo ’s.

Mouth: yes, it’s superb! Paraffin and paper again, mastic candies, olive oil, bitter almonds, orgeat syrup… Very, very waxy and malty, with no weakness at all. Cookies, coffee caramel, cigars… Wow, Cardhu! No wonder it was such a star in the old days
