  1. DerDennis! scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    He is old ... complex, difficult to grasp. Overall, very balanced, with sherry and smoke in the taste something go down, but I have cherries ... maybe. from the red wine barrel. For the price I expected ... more.
    • Nose
      Spicy, nutty, light sweetness, nutmeg, honey, tart orange marmalade, clove, grated lemon zest, malt, white pepper, charcoal
    • Taste
      sweet, spicy, cherries, pepper, nutty ... almonds, dark chocolate, pleasant wood, honey
    • Finish
      medium to long, cherries, oak and discreet wood smoke

  2. Brunobaer1887 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Overrated and far too expensive, for the age I expected more. Since the name Billy Walker will also contribute its name to a part. It's a shame that it's not just about quality

    Yes there is peat and cream on the nose but there appears to be a big wood note and little else but I am struggling for descriptors here.
    This one is really fizzy on the palate, very lively, simple profile but I like it and the strength of 48% is spot on.
