  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I was expecting al lot more from this one, sadly a bit of a let down and in my view not worth a purchase at auction.

      Fresh mixed tropical fruits but mainly mango pineapple, very faint dried banana and a little apple.
      There is an almost industrial quality to the smell, like an old engineering workshop mixed with old leather.
      With more air in the glass cereal notes emerge,
    • Taste

      There is a clear bitter note on this at first that pushes any sweetness into the background. I agree with Baanaanabob that the bitterness is almost metallic.
      The fruit is not that nice it is almost sour, shame.
      No point describing this any further its tainted
    • Finish

      The finish is an improvement over the palate with some slightly sweeter fruit coming through but its far too late.

    Deliciously tropical but somehow a bit metallic

    Bowmore 31y 1968/1999, 44%, Signatory, cask 3820, 252 bottles can be summarized as 'tropical!'. Melon, kiwi, passion fruit, grapefruit ... something waxy too. Spice a little through all the fruit on the taste. Ginger? Maybe not very complex, but so nice. Feast! 92/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/01/20/bezoekje-aan-bb/
