  1. ctu scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Just as amazing with an old 21 years old from 1998. But the higher ABV 52.4% is reflects better. The flavors is burn into your brain.
    • Nose
      Very well matured, fruity, spicy: waxy apple, pineapple and apricot, rum raisin, oak and flowers
    • Taste
      Strong peppery start. It was a little scary. But soon arrived the sweet fruits: apple and apricots.
      The strength, spice and intensity of the oak is excellent.
      Coconut, cinnamon, white chocolate, salted caramel.
    • Finish
      Very long, creamy, fruity and spicy

    No need for water, a really good Local Barley, due to the bitter notes on the finish it loses a few points.
    • Nose
      Nice nose, orange liqueur, rum & raisin ice cream, Lucozade, cola cube sweets, faint Highland toffee 
    • Taste
      Smooth at first but then a citrus, sherried punch with fig, plum & caramel.

      The sherry seems to grow with some nice mango notes and perhaps a little apple,

      Seems to get very fizzy after a while and the plum notes grow. 
    • Finish
      Long, keeps going but some bitterness has crept in.
