Colour: full gold.

Nose: rather expressive, starting right on vanilla and oak, not unlike some recent ‘plain wood’ Glenmorangies, with also quite some freshly baked bread (the crust) and getting then very fruity again. It’s full of youth, with all these apricoty notes. Develops on ripe melon, mirabelle plums, oriental pastries (orange flower water), Turkish delights box and gets then quite honeyed, and finally quite resinous (wax polish, hints of eucalyptus, pine needles), always with a very elegant oaky structure. Classy stuff!

Mouth: maybe it lacks a little oomph now but it’s very creamy and oily, with both lots of dried fruits (figs, dates, sultanas) and again these resinous notes: cough sweets, propolis, eucalyptus honey… And then we have the spices (cinnamon, cloves, white pepper) as well as Turkish delights and quince jelly, the whole being so nicely blended.

The finish is medium long but satisfying, mostly on vanilla, tea, praline and honey… Too bad it was not bottled at 45% or more, but again, it’s complex, classy whisky. As we say here, ‘pure pleasure’ – and no sign of tiredness whatsoever. 91 points.
