  4. Highlander65 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Overall very good and balanced, more complex than 15yo.
    • Nose
      Good fruit, hot cereal (brioches?), Fresh grass, a pinch of mint, the high alcohol content is not perceived in the least
    • Taste
      Light body, fresh and clean, with fruits, spices and a little icing sugar. Even in the mouth the alcohol is not perceived despite the 51.5 degrees
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, honey and vanilla mixed

  6. malthead-1984 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice classic puristic malt
    • Nose
      86 86
      Very nice ex-Bourben barrel fruit aromas that are not quite as bright anymore, it remains with the grape note. In addition, there are more and more the dry Olloroso note with the grassy herbs, great and interesting
    • Taste
      84 84
      The 51.5 ABV give the Victoriana a nice start but not without flavors, great charring flavors paired with the fruitiness, seaweed and nuts give the whole really character
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish becomes a bit more barrel-heavy and has the heavily burnt-out aromas again, the nutty gets through well and you even think you can taste some leather
