Brown Golden. Honey, Fruity, Flowerish. Deep and pleasant. Citrus. Light Body. Complex. High Alc., palate killer. Score:90. My favorite today.
Benrinnes 23YO 1980/2003 (53.9%, Blackadder Bottling, Raw Cask, Cask#1352)
Golden. Nutty, malty, craming. A little bit tropical fruit. Thin body? Sweetness comes from malt. Score: 82. I think this one need some time to open up.
Macallan 25YO Fine Oak (43%, Original Bottling)
Gold Brown. Sweetness. Fropical fruit and Cirtrus. Some caremel. Smokeness Macallan at the back. This one is more sherry than I remember. I think the award sample is better.Score: 83.
