  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Well well well, I considered myself a very very lucky b*stard for having got the opportunity to experience this one.
    But how to rate this? If you would taste this blind without knowing what you're drinking, you might say it's a pleasant whisky, but maybe not too special.
    But considering this is a whisky of about EIGHTY years old (since bottled) makes the story completely different.
    This liquid is still so unbelievably drinkable: Sweet 'drops' ("zoete dropjes") in the nose and taste, a hint of licorice maybe, some fruity notes, some vanilla sweetness.
    And it even has some power left in it, some slight peppers, a light and pleasant tingling mouthfeel. Not weak at all. Again, unbelievable for such an old whisky.
    Experience of a lifetime, I doubt whether I will taste such old stuff ever again in my whiskylife.
