  2. Falnor scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Simply very good grain. Very, very drinkable. At the level with some of the older grains.
    • Nose
      Instant gratification that old grains can give you. Sweet vanilla cream, cotton candy, custard and the banana with coconut fruitiness in a very enjoyable combination.  
    • Taste
      Sponge cake, toast, vanilla icecream, apples with honey. This is just so drinkable, very smooth almost lemonade (but very good). Later on some old or antique furniture
    • Finish
      Long and fading end based on vanilla, cream. However I also found an ashy/ burned wood note? This was enhanced while drinking the Glentauchers 1996 Arc. It was a bit strange, but added a point for the score.
