  2. ctu scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Good grain with rich fruitiness and a few glue.
    • Nose
      Citruses, tropical fruits, pina colada, vanilla, spicy oak and lacquered wood.
    • Taste
      Refined, sweet, creamy and oily. Vanilla and lot of fruits, mostly peaches. Bergamot oil.
    • Finish
      Long, dry, fruity.

  3. The Macallan scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Clearly a first fill cask, fun but not very exciting to me. I have tasted some better grains in the past from the sixties, a 1965 Invergordon from Duncan Taylor is a fine example of it. However this grain has some nice accents on the nose.
    • Nose
      Packed with vanilla, bourbon, matured, slightly warming spicyness, it's more a well aged ordinary bourbon then a grain, wood shavings, tropical fruit
    • Taste
      Very gentle, sweet with again vanilla with a huge amount of fruit but very monotone
    • Finish
      Dry, spicy with a hint of fruit
