Review door Glenury Royal

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »
Geur

Vivacious for its age; complex, full and deep. Perfume and fruit dominate at first, led by vanilla and Parma violets, black cherries and cooked apricots. Behind them lies a leathery, masculine note leading into burnt sugar, chocolate and mint. Water mellows all. Perfume and fruit give way now to wedding cake, treacle and soft leathery aromas.

Smaak

Pleasantly soft at natural strength. Smoky to start, then a scented and deliciously layered fruitiness that reminds you of a sandalwood box containing sweet treats - Turkish delight, dried fruits, black plum. Water makes themouth-feel more waxy, even teeth coating. The flavour is gloriously mellow and agreeably balanced.

Afdronk

Polished leather and boat varnish, then more delicious caramelised fruit.

Notitie

Spectacularly good - a real "Clint Eastwood" of a malt, mature yet full of verve, with no signs of old age. A scented, balanced and gloriously mellow old East Highland malt; full amber gold with a complex, deep nose, medium to full bodied, smooth, subtle and rounded in flavour.
