3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.29 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    It has its merit but it doesn't quite hang together or meet my expectations; one should not expect a big bang from such an old whisky but I don't think the followthrough from nose to finish is especially welcoming
    • Nose
      christmas cake to start, but woody notes start to come to the fore; floor polish
    • Taste
      thinner than one would expect, but keeps a sweet sticky edge
    • Finish
      medium->long; dries quite a bit; the wood notes are there but they are not overly distracting, a slight bovril quality

  2. Dram Brigade scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    What not to love about this whisky! Strong dark chocolate and fruit cake nose, both fresh berries and dried fruits taste, long finish with sherry oak fragrant. An easy 90 pointer!
    • Nose
      Strong dark chocolate right after polish oak, oily juicy fruit cake, some old leather, then cocoa powder again~ hints of vanilla syrup at the back and quite some sweet fragrant. After a sip, even stronger dark chocolate and old oak. Lovely!
    • Taste
      Dark fruits combine with sweet red berries. Chewy oak, dark chocolate mints, hints of PX at the back.
    • Finish
      Long and rich, bittersweet mints and oak fragrance.
