Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: rich, nutty, sherried and earthy; a gentle touch of peat perhaps, new leather sofas and candied fruits; cinnamon buns and Christmas cake.
Palate: rich, sherried and nutty with a beautiful oily profile; more candied fruits, dark chocolate, pipe tobacco and new leather; is there a touch of peat? I think so, but it is deft; layers of spice, bright orange and soft tropical fruits.
Finish: leathery and earthy with dry Oloroso and dark chocolate; the body vanishes more quickly the spices, sherry and fruits which last long!
Comment: nicely balanced; tastes old, but not ancient; very drinkable.
Producer Description: "It contains Old Highland and Speyside malts from the 70's, 80's & 90's that are vatted together in a sherry cask to produce a smooth and old-style whisky lingering experience."
Producer Tasting Note: "On the nose: A soft touch of oloroso sherry, honey, warm toasted brioche, fresh, fine leather, warm cooked fruits, eucalyptus, soft hints of nutmeg, chrysanthemum, fine aged malt, aromas are well interwoven, almost no alcohol detected in the nose. On the palate: It starts with a very smooth and gentle sweetness, and then the spiciness kicks in, fine soft oak, gentle oloroso dryness, balanced whisky that tempts you to take a second glass with a lingering finish."
About Eiling Lim
"Lim æž—" is my family name and in Chinese, it is defined as woods or forests. If you separate the family name into two, this character "æœ¨" means wood and wood is crucial in making a good cask.From a humble beginning of a young lady who enjoys her whisky to being the 1st independent bottler of scotch whisky in my home country Malaysia is quite a feat! It is beyond my wildest dreams. This has not been possible without the guidance and motivation from my family and my husband Luc Timmermans whom is a whisky connoisseur and collector as well as a "retired" independent bottler himself under the handwritten label, Thosop.
"Maybe it was fate that brought me to start my very own whisky adventure. After all, whisky has played an important part in my life at every level. I have met my husband if it was not for whisky and I would not have met so many wonderful friends in many parts of the world coming together for whisky. Whisky changed my life and now I would love to change whisky scene in Malaysia by introducing them to a world of wonderful independent bottlings.
"The whisky selection which both my husband and I have chosen are based simply on 3 criterias. First of all the taste of the whisky has to be better than good because good is simply not good enough. Second, the whisky has to be highly quaffable where one have to feel the pleasure of drinking our whisky because taking just a sip is an insult. And lastly, we strive for a good price-quality ratio. We avoid choosing casks from only famous distillery and overpriced whisky. We bring variety to the whisky market with reasonable prices so that no one is obliged to keep my bottles as an investment and not to open them. We want whiskylovers to open and savour every bottle and share them with friends or even with us!"
