  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1767
    • Nose
      Peach, lemon and lime! Subtle honey. Finesse! It takes a little breadth and thickness, without excess and acquires notes of toffee for a little greed.
    • Taste
      The fruits of the nose are there. We have a duel sweet / salty (brine) - with the toffee in the middle to arbitrate - which tends to be won by salty: as often, this distillate resists greed!
    • Finish
      Persistent, but restrained. Unripe fruits.

  4. aphex scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    It reminded me of the Ben Nevis 1996 21 yo from The Nectar. Same freshness on fruits and minerality, similar palate with fruits coated in honey. Great nose, great palate. Excellent selection.
    • Nose
      Fresh. Barley, yellow fruits (peaches) and citrus (grapefruits, lemons). Whiffs of custard. Honey. And mineral notes with a few pencil shavings.
    • Taste
      Fruity and mineral again. Peaches, tropical fruits, grapefruits and lemon. Sweet and slightly sour. A touch of honey. A pinch of salt. Wet stones. Pepper.
    • Finish
      Long. Lingering fruits and pepper.
