  1. Astrid scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The barrel wood made a clear impression after 21 years, maybe even too much in places. Overall solid, an everyday malt to lean back and enjoy.

    N- Openness nuance that are arousing to the senses. Lavender field with drips of nectar from seasoned wood jar that escalate to mince pies, cinnamon, cappuccino and many more Christmas goodies. Banana, rum-ish with tart dry wood. However it tend to get softer after breath with sweet tobacco, mars bar and some wood shaves. (89/22)

    P- Elegant, subtle sweet sherry oak, expected dried fruits compote with bitter mint. Pronounced oak resin, tobacco and herb oilmen. (87/21)

    F- Medium-long, mashed thyme, herb-y with tinges of dried peel bitterness. (86/20)

    B/B- 87/21

    Weighted Rate- 84pt

  6. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Extremely sherry-tonic, malty and nutty. Raisins, dried figs, tart oak, lightly roasted nuts and some leather. nOnly very clearly structured and mature, but at the same time not very complex. Tarte Tatin with some time.
    • Taste
      Dry sherry tones, nuts and malt. In addition, notes of raisins, cinnamon, dried figs, but then increasingly tart for rose hips, hawthorn, foliage, leather, roasted nuts and herbal tinctures. Here, too, knitted comparably simple, with him a few% more certainly would have done well.
    • Finish
      Long, clear, very sherrytönig.

      Expected to be a step higher than the 18yo. Burned sugar. Caramel. Fruit, apple and pear again. Wood, nuts, wax. Spicy. Nice nose!
    • Taste
      86 86
      Soft and bitter. Nice earthy tones on the tongue. Fruity with a pepper. Less flat than the 18yo.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium. The spicy remains delicious on the tongue. The pepper gives the sharp edge.
