The Old Speysider 27 Years (Svenska Eldvatten)

Tasting notes - Posted in * Undisclosed

A new undisclosed Speyside whisky bottled by Svenska Eldvatten. It is 27 years old and comes from a single cask.



Old Speysider 27 Years - Svenska EldvattenThe Old Speysider 27 yo 1992 (46,3%, Svenska Eldvatten 2019, refill bourbon hogshead, 257 btl.)

Nose: a great mix of yellow plums, gooseberries and pineapple, with mint and herbs. A good dose of wax and resin too. Honey and almond biscuits. Some bready notes too, alternating with banana and vanilla. Mouth: more tropical now, highlighting the pineapple as well as mango and a little passion fruit sorbet. Lime and lemon, a touch of jasmin and Earl Grey. Herbal touches and white pepper. Waxy notes. Vanilla and honey (of course). Finish: medium length, still on pink grapefruit and papaya, herbal notes and peppery oak.

Fans of tropical fruits, this one is for you. Actually it’s rather close to these undisclosed Irish 1991s in a way. Recommended. Around € 210, mainly found in Sweden and Germany.

Score: 90/100
