    In Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2019.
    Cave Aquila "A Knights Dram" Invergordon 44y 1972.
    Liquid Gold Award 95/100

    Nose: 24/25: The cut-glas, crystalline demerara sugars versus the oak-laden, bourbon-edged prickly spice is nothing short of glorious.
    Taste: 24/25: Just about perfect weight on the delivery, the corn oil captures every last input of the maple leaf syrup and Manuka honey mix, the spices buzz, neither too soft or loud.
    Finish: 23,5/25: Remains gently toasty with an even more noticeable nod towards a very classy Canadian/Bourbon blend.
    Balance: 23,5/25: You almost want to give the spices a standing ovation.

  2. Whisky Aquila scored this whisky 95 points Member Senior

    Very aromatic, the cask has taken over the grain completely.
    Nose: Sweet, like an old Rum
    Taste: Creme Brûlée, Moelleux, dark chocolate, Rum, espresso, candy sugar, gingerbread, oak,
    FINISH: Very long, with soft spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper
