  1. Achany scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    fruity, dark berries, hints of moldy wine cellar, some vanilla, some honey, some very fine spices, a bit oaky but just perfect. Is there a trace of peat? very gentle peat? finish is nice and fruty, long lasting. fine compex single malt! (WSZ18)

  2. nallacam scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Can you be disappointed and still give 90 points?
    In this case it is the case with me. It is a very good malt that brings everything with it. Power, spice and sweetness. But for me that certain something is missing, the tension that makes it an anniversary whisky and in particular justifies this price.

    20 years, is it worth it?
    • Nose
      glue to the nostrils, then sensation of finer almonds, then smoke "light", very sweet, very ethereal!
      return vanilla, and fine sherry on cooked apples and a little caramelized
    • Taste
      a candy!!
      sweetness meringue, vanilla, creamy,
      sweet spices,
      the smoke, just like a line, which gives more character, more expression, we also have fruit cooked on the apple, the grapes are cooked
      back cocoa
    • Finish
      quite long, on these same aromas, with cooking spices and this fine smoke.
