Tasting notes

Lion's | 24-03-2013

From Whiskyfun.com

Colour: amber.

Nose: immediately more complex than the one from the 80’s, starting much more on tar and tinned mangos but developing on lots of mint again, passion fruit, milk jam and used fireworks. Keeps going on (should we say ‘walking’?) with kumquats and bergamots, a little musk, Havana smoke, incense, lemon balm, flints, pine needles… Hugely complex! What a stunning nose…

Mouth: absolutely stunning, excellently bitter and resinous, fat and oily but not cloying at all, starting on high-end Chartreuse (and other kinds of great herbal liqueurs) and orange marmalade and developing on mint sauce, beeswax and cough syrup. The balance is absolutely perfect after all these years… We have also quite some liquorice, butter caramel, resin-flavoured sweets, kumquats… Just fab.

Finish: quite long, coherent, satisfying, on orange marmalade and mint, with a little salt and hints of mustard, just a tad drying. A great one again, no questions, and a (pricey) must in any serious collection. Legendary. 94 points.
