3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.67 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Not spectacular but a solid consistent nose and delivery
    • Nose
      delicious malty sweetness with soft lemon cif
    • Taste
      still sweet but with some dryness as well in the reaction with the mouth; Opal Fruits
    • Finish
      medium; not so much citric as white and green fruits like green melon and lychees. Malty as well but not spicy (barrel rather than hogshead-style finish)

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The Tasting Panel found the nose immediately attractive - dark polished wood, dried flowers and a late summer impression of meadows and orchard fruits (pear, peach, russet apple). The palate had juicy fruits (pear-drops, strawberry, stewed rhubarb), chocolate and marzipan confectionery, with the finish nodding in a pink peppercorn and tobacco direction. The reduced nose seemed even brighter - a sunny day with freshly-laundered linen on the washing line, blackcurrant, Key lime pie and lemon posset. The reduced palate was simply sweet, juicy and lip-smacking, with rainbow drops, lime marmalade, orange Creamola Foam* and subtle hints of liquorice and tobacco - very easy-drinking for its age. (* fruity soft drink manufactured in Scotland from the 1950s to the '90s. Sold in tins of soluble crystals which you had to mix with water.)
