    One of the best Speysider 73 that i had...

    The typical charakter of these fabulous whiskys is given, but i have to state that the Liquid Treasures is one of the smoothest, even sweetest ones. Not that "spicy" than the also outstanding TWA Art Nouveau Ladies for example...

  4. dRambo scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    a nice malt - I find the fruit notes less versatile than other Speysidern and he has especially in the nose less fruity acid - but he is at comparatively low residual alcohol strength impressive dense, spicy, powerful and brings a very unique profile - definitely very high quality - From the profile I like the last Maltbarn for 10y anniversary better.
    • Nose
      Lemon, lime and green banana, yoghurt with pineapple and a malty sweetness with a hint of sourdough bread, vanilla-coconut-cream dessert that sometimes hints towards Pina Colada, tree sap, light wood with a herbal seasoning which easily sweat on garlic Reminiscent - everything in aromatic very pleasant frame.
    • Taste
      sweetened pineapple yoghurt, ginger, oak planks - it starts creamy and becomes more and more peppery - very lively on the tongue, wax, tobacco, pepper, chili, laurel, pine needles, some hardened resin, oak with fine bitterness like walnuts, clear saltiness, slightly mineral (stone meal)

      For 46.5% has quite a lot of power - he is not sprittig, but the alcoholic power is still very noticeable - maybe it's the flavors and the pepper - I think it is very productive - can chew very long without thin Act.
    • Finish
      fruity, spicy, becoming drier - slight bitterness and light acidity, very spicy - tends to have medium length

    Very sirupy and thus very drinkable and probably dangerous - my personal favorite is still the good vibes from the whisky agency because of its fruitiness but to be honest all of the recent speyside region bottlings from 1973 or 1975 are sensational
    • Nose
      Honeydew, yellow fruits, peaches, quinces, plums, whiffs of leather, spices, pepper, ginger - a little bit reluctant but probably needs more air - not bad so far
    • Taste
      Very oily, creamy, mellow, soft, fruity, more on citrus fruits, lemons, oranges, good sweetness, fine oak wood - very good
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, soft, more spices, not drying

  6. Simon Stood scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Cream, dried apricots, cashews, a little perfume and sour plums, cinnamon
    • Taste
      Sweet plums, melon, tropical fruits, vanilla, peppermint
    • Finish
      Honey, leather, oriental spices, roasted walnuts

  7. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Definitely among the better SR, beautiful notes with a lot of scope to discover, a bit of everything and nice powerful in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Beautiful, light raisins, yellow fruits of all kinds, lychee, yellow apples, sweet pears, marzipan, moist tobacco, macadamia nuts, leather, candied ginger and papaya, some mango and toffee
    • Taste
      Full on, pear, ginger, herbal honey, light green tea, white tea, aniseed, lavender, lots of toffee, marzipan and cinnamon, almonds, papaya, you can leave forever in the mouth and loses zero power, kiwi, nettle and turmeric, licorice
