  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Not a very exciting whisky, but just steady and good to go. Pretty thick, fruity, orange. Pleasant daily dram.

      Fruity, orange, oily, like lamp oil. Then more citrus, and some autumn forest scents.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Smooth, very oily and thick. Fruitiness, orange. Some honey. Some sour edge underneath. Later on tending toward a bit pale character. Aĺso a floral touch.
    • Finish

      A bit sparkling now, orange fruitiness, far away a touch of licorice. Middle long finish.

  4. The Macallan scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    Sherry, rubber, oranges on the nose.
    Full, dry, dried fruit on the palate.
    Warm, long and spicy on the finish.
    Not my cup of tea, but it devellops over time.

  8. diamond2000 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: sweet-sour, plum jam, caramel, black currant with sugar, very pleasant wood (old lacquered furniture, cigar humidor), vanilla, walnut, flavored tobacco and all this complements the malt-bread notes.

    Taste: sweet-spicy, dark raisins, prunes, nuts, dark chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, pleasant woody tannins.

    Finish: rather lightweight (still it is only 43%), dried fruit, light spices: cinnamon, dried ginger, slightly oak tannins, slowly fading, of medium length.

    Rating: 86

    Bottom line: reference made dvenashka! In fact, a molt feels at least 15 years old and this is probably the best that can be achieved from an almost minimal fortress. Everything is rich, harmonious and balanced, excellent barrels that give a sense of antique furniture.
    I have not tried anything else from the F & F series, but this molt spurs to try.
