  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Hard to accept but we no longer make this kind of whisky today.
    A success from start to finish, a journey.

      Austere nose at the same time, bursting with personality.
      The aromas are melted, changing.
      Peat is present on the hay. The smoke is light and stringy, as if swirling in the glass to balance the aromas.
      We have a nice dose of citrus, mainly juicy orange and lemon.
      A certain minerality, with chalk, aspirin.
      A little pine honey, eucalyptus. Almost a drop of aromatic oil.
      With aeration, a little bit of dragon fruit.
    • Taste
      94 94
      On the palate, it is oily, and overwhelming.
      The aromas are quickly distributed in the mouth.
      Above all the peat, soft and sweet, oily. The delicate and cold smoke. The mouth is lined.
      Then citrus fruits, lemon, bergamot. Some aromatic herbs, such as dry thyme.
      Pepper, a light woody flavor. Light caramel.
    • Finish
      94 94
      Long finish on citrus fruits, cold smoke, barbecue, oily peat, honey. Very comforting.

    Good balance of fruitiness and smokiness - my expectations were a little bit higher for this 21yo but overall it's on a similar level like the Longrow 1974 16yo - great!
    • Nose
      93 93
      Tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, hints of vanilla, citrus fruits, lemons, little austere and smoky, cigar tobacco, cold ashes, spices, little herbs, some minerals, limestone - great!
    • Taste
      93 93
      Punchy, oily, creamy, subtle sweetness, old books, little OBE, smoky, hints of vanilla, honeydew, tobacco, cigars, some tropical fruits, little fruit juice, spices, herbs - very good!
    • Finish
      92 92
      Medium long, warm, spicy, zesty, little herbal, smoky
