  1. BowmoreMore1 scored this whisky 100 points Newbie

    This is a highlight in my collection and at least one level more noble than the 1988/2017
    • Nose
      Citrus fruits, somewhat fruity, flowery and earthy.
    • Taste
      lemon
      flower
      velvety earth
    • Finish
      Great, shouldn't be missing in any collection - I don't miss it anymore!
      Price is still a bargain.

  2. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose and palate simply wonderful, shame about the lacking finish.
    • Nose
      Lemons and flowers, very floral and vibrant with a big bag of soap in the background. Very balanced with the freshness of lemons and gentle bonfire smoke.
    • Taste
      There's the soap, very soapy, like chewing on green bars you find in cheap hotels. Lemony like lemon drops and lemon cough sweets. A slightly earthiness is present throughout the palate
    • Finish
      Shorter than expected, wood chips and smokiness and a little earth.
