  1. Kensay scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    It's always difficult to judge old whisky. What was he like when it was poured? how much did you lose while waiting in the wings? matured or lost its former splendor? it is always a mystery ... This whisky is a real pleasure, yes, it is not too complicated, but its simplicity is charming. It is famously balanced, the nose pleases right away, an excellent light whisky with which it is pleasant to spend the evening, it will not make you overextend yourself in search of depths, but will give everything at once, even if it is not very difficult, but it is very tasty
    • Nose

      delicate and light, dried fruits forgotten in a dusty attic, fading coals in the grill, overripe grapes forgotten on the vine, dark chocolate, a little vanilla, delicate and pleasant
    • Taste
      88 88
      dried plums and pears, sherry, some spices, very light
    • Finish
      88 88
      dry, warming, a little spice in sherry, a little old wood, light and unobtrusive, short enough

  7. The Macallan scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Finally I found my notes of this one.

    C: Brown/amber like

    N: sherry notes, lots of fruit and sweetness, malt and perhaps some floral notes?

    P: Smooth, mouth coating, the sherry comes back, with a touch of chewy oaky dryness

    F: Long with some woodspices and drying in the back

    A bit more toffee and less powerful and citrusy than the Previ import.

  9. mds51 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sherry notes, citrus, red apples, oranges, nuts, blackcurrant, salt, mushrooms,
    • Taste
      Creamy, wood, earthy berries, cherries, syrupy, coffee, nutty, dark chocolate, roasted aromas, raspberries
    • Finish
      The syrupy feeling stays in the mouth and lays on the cheeks. There remains a woody-spicy-sweet finish, which is medium long.
