  1. Achany scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, a lot of fruits, yellow apples, tropical fruits as well. a very gentle oaky influence, some vanilla, some honey and tropical again. the finish is really long lasting. What a wonderful dram this is. Tasted it during a Bunnahabhain Ultimate Tasting in Summer 2018. Really old and dignified dram!

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Wow, outrages tropical notes here, but utterly elegant, grass, fresh cream, very similar to the Port Askaig 45 I tasted recently, extremely floral, also there are lemon and oranges.
    • Taste
      Mellow and sweet, oily, Magnolia flowers. Fresh creams, top tier oak, floral wood spices, a touch of shoe polishes, a bit watery.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, banana cream, top tier oak.
