I had dinner, and i've just opened it . I came to the forum...and here's this thread, with the very same dram already on my palate!!
i would say it's very fine, but not outstanding. it reminds me of the macallan Fine Oak 10 which was gifted me. Nothing wrong with it...but I don't think I'd buy a bottle. For this "weight" of whisky, i'd rather a glenmorangie 10, or Portwood...or a Glenfiddich 15, all of which have either more complxity or depth IMO.
You pays yer money...
Reccomendable, just shy of whiky
84 Sm Royal Lochnagar 12yo (No alcohol statement, OB, 50ml, circa. 2000) November 28th. I have not made tasting notes yet, but this is a really lovely dram. Sherry, malt, and gentle smoke. Second taste of this sample, I will say it is flawless and wonderfully crafted, but lacks a touch of oopmh. Great balance between the three dominate elements, with the malt being the clear winner on the mouth, some gentle spiciness at the finish. Cookies with vanilla. Perhaps a bit soft of a nose for true greatness, but one I would like to have a full bottle of, not just this sample.
