BLADNOCH 27yo 1990 2017 70cl 49.4 % Antique Lions of Whisky

Nose: quite fresh, melon, then gets very precise on green tea, which I love. Jasmine, bergamot, mint, aloe vera ... old style goodness. Light vanilla and a very elegant fine woodiness. Soft fruitiness : guava, fresh apples, less citrusy and fresh than one would expect. Gets even more complex afterwards with eucalyptus, sage and a feeling of laundry that suits the profile perfectly. Though not in a good day for tasting i found it already very complex and very precise.

Taste: apples, pears, melon, and a bit more vegetal here. Obvious green tea again, with green pepper, salt, lemon, and a feeling of fresh goat cheese maybe. It's not as precise as the nose and might lack a bit of freshness but further sips were more convincing, gaining a waxier old-style touch. Complex again.

Finish: salt, lemon (and maybe even the Tequila that goes with it), basil (that "sweetly herbal" feeling), quite a lot of lime now, but still not in a "fresh and juicy" way. Green tea still.
