  1. Kensay scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    very light nose, vanilla, summer meadow herbs
    it has a very simple taste, even unexpectedly for 26 years,
    nothing interesting, but very balanced, easy drinking whiskey

  4. Jackson05 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    N: Vanilla bean ice cream, a drop of orange oil, cardamom, an old antique shop, malty, creamy, a little citrus zing in there too, butterscotch, all tied together with a nice waxiness

    P: Creamy and thick, butterscotch, custard, candied ginger, orange zest, clotted cream, a little lychee which is really nice

    F: A good lick of spicy oak, orange pith, earl grey tea, drying, medium-short finish

    Thoughts: I sampled this twice in store and while it was good, it really doesn’t do it justice. It’s not an instant thrill dram. Time and patience rewards you, very elegant and classy. It’s malty, it’s got character and it tastes quite old. In a tasting setting this is would get overshadowed I think. It really shines on its own. A bit of a bitter drying finish which is quite common in older bourbon matured drams, I find.

    Is it me, or is this another Creations Batch 3! Last year’s was an 18yo [WB]. This 26yo is a vatting of Aultmore, Braeval, Bruichladdich, Glen Grant, Glenlivet, Strathisla and Tamdhu - all married in the Highlands.

    N: Similar to the Glen Moray with it’s sweet floral qualities, coupled with a cereal malty sweetness from delicate [Nice-like] biscuits.

    T: If like the Moray on the nose, it’s rather more like the Rosebank to taste. Given its array of components, it’s of no surprise in that the profile changes all the time. I find it fairly woody, though water promotes floral malty putty notes with a light yet discernible chew.

    F: Citric-dry with a growing chewy caramel note, quite some freshness and dare I even mention - a mild soapy hue.

    C: Given the nature of these complex blends, this is very decent indeed, tasty too and very popular amongst our group.
