  1. dRambo scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    for the 5 on the label a lot of ripe flavors, at the same time still pleasantly crisp - I like it a lot
    • Nose
      86 86
      At first there was a slightly peppy OBF which quickly evaporates, lime zest, fresh fragrant crystalline sugared lemon, a hint of yeast dough, vanilla, porridge and very delicate smoke entry
    • Taste
      87 87
      I don't find it very voluminous and intense for 43% alcoholic stinging - citrus cascades, fresh tree sap, yellow fruit and ginger, pleasant roasted notes of bitterness
    • Finish
      86 86
      tickles pleasantly, the finish is medium-long and pleasantly warming

    Bottler: Strathdearn Scottish Distillers Age: older than 5 years A bottling exclusively for Italy from the 60s to 70s Nose: classical notes of the old times. Light, fresh flavors of a light highlander paired with fine smoke, malt and "breathing" oak barrels rise in the nose. With a little air also bright fruits come to light. Palate: round and harmonious with depth and a nice play of dry, earthy nuances, fine sweetness and subtle salty hints. Resonance: surprisingly persistent for such a young malt ....
