  1. aspa scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Fruit salad, especially apples. Very strong, green or pink lady. Sugar. Little sherry, alcohol well integrated, very gentle. Carmel syrup, the slightly artificial one. Lightly burned pancakes not maple syrup.
    The same in the mouth, but more maple syrup and a little less apple. Light alcohol on the palate.
    Very long finish, sgerry with caramel and some alcohol

    Similar and yet very different to the sister of the 1991 27yo, which I like even more, but this one is also great.

    N-92, T-92, F-91, totally super delicious 92 points

    Nice old style sour sherry. Not as complex and deep as 3862 cask from same year but still really good!

      First wood and grain. After 30 minutes, peach is added. Much softer and rounder with water.

    Quite a good Nevis, actually. The character of the distillery might get a tick stronger. There are also grain notes to be found. The sherry influence is rather yellow-fruity with a lot of citrus fruits.

    Something bothers me about the citrus whipping, so it doesn't have to be a big bottle.
