Tasting notes

Lion's | 11-04-2013


Colour: amber/brown.

Nose: big sherry, probably from true sherry casks (as opposed to sherry-seasoned casks, which seems to be the norm in the whisky industry since quite some years now.) Much more chocolate, coffee, Xmas cake, prunes, ham… It smells like a great old 100yo Armagnac at times. In the background: quite some fruits, dried pears, figs, more ham (cured) and finally notes of Havana cigar (unlit). Oh, also parsley and lovage as often in this old style whiskies. Very impressive. With water: tar, shoe polish, smoke, peat and game. Immense and almost overwhelming.

Mouth: big power! It’s almost liqueur, such is this one’s concentration. Dates, figs and mint at full strength. Also loads of pine resin, liquorice, peat… It’s so thick that one may drink it using a flat spoon - serious. Even chopsticks! With water: ‘a liquid symphony’.

Finish: as a good friend of mine once wrote: ‘God’s got some thinking to do as this old beauty redefines eternity’. Comments: eight years old, that must be a misprint. Must be 38. Up there in the malty pantheon. SGP:463 - 94 points.
