    This one is a gem, especially for the price. Was very surprised by this one.

      All sorts of fruits. Take your pick, dark, tropical, orchard, they're all here. It is all b rough together by some nice tart berry, but not overly tart or sour. Pastry dough as well, quite good. Slight bit of cardamom and spices.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Cinnamon soaked apples and pear, then a nice chocolatey note. Cocoa powder, not intense on the chocolate, but balanced.

      Baking spices. Very pleasant and gentle finish. Long, but not forever. Unusual for a lot of finishes, but given it's age makes sense to have a better finish than some younger port finishes I've had.

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nice powerful and fruity whisky, with some clear licorice too. Nicely balanced and pleasant.

      Powerful scent, some prominent alcohol. Tropical fruits, apples, some citrus. Licorice now too. Then some floral notes as well.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Strong, pickering, intense. Fruity, orange, then clearly some licorice. And some chocolate.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still pretty strong, fruity, orange, sweet too, chocolate, a little bitter note. Wood influences now, pretty long finish.
