  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this gem at a spectacular tasting / Masterclass MoS led by Thomas Ewers himself for the 50th anniversary of Whisky van Zuylen.

    This was the second one of the evening, and the rest of the line-up was at least as spectacular: Banff '75, (Glen Scotia '72), Bunna '70, Tomintoul '69, Bunna '68, Ardbeg '91 and Port Ellen '82
    • Nose
      93 93
      glue, all kinds of spices and herbs, and fruity ow so very fruity (banana, kiwi, papaya). This accompanied with diesel, some meatiness and magic markers
    • Taste
      92 92
      more fruitiness, some grass and hay, and some mineral oily and nuts a bit of an earthy coffee note.
    • Finish
      91 91
      one of the longest finishes ever, it just keeps coming back, lovely oily fruits with this dirty diesel note

  3. gerrit de guru scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The nose is very good 90pts or above, but the taste was on the thin side, or just too delicate for me, or my expectations were too high on this one.
    • Nose
      Soft and sweet. Oily (linseed?) Reminds me somewhat of old Bunna: cocos, peach and banana. Wunderbaum and some traces of pine resin.
    • Taste
      Wood, as expected. With a slight bitterness. For me not to distinguish as a Cambeltown malt. Old coins. With water it opens up remarkebly. Syrup. Nuts and cocos caramel.
    • Finish
      Quite long for it's age.

  4. Falnor scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Truly a great nose that tells a history most whisky dare to dream of.
    • Nose
      A basket full of ripe and exotic fruit. Fresh kiwi and passion fruit mixed with very ripe bananas. This intense fruity profile also has an exciting other side with an oily texture and the scent of magic markers and even old engines.
    • Taste
      On the palate the dried mandarin and exotic fruits are accompanied with cashew nuts and almond oil. The oily profile even extent into oliveoil and pine nuts. Sirop and caramel. Fruity tea's become darker and develop a slight coffee accent.
    • Finish
      A long finish that belongs to this whisky history
