  1. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Did a bottle split of this with a good friend when ti came up in a sale recently. Notes are from a freshly cracked bottle; rested for a half hour.

    Water, just the smallest bit, really makes this malt sing. As this bottle opens I really look forward to more drams as it's quite good.

      Wow, rich and sweet! Loads going on here on first nose and a little pepper-y bite too with the alcohol... but as it settles it really warms up quickly. Vanilla floral, perfume and chalk. Anise seeds or mint sprigs (can't make up my mind on that camphor note), cocoa with roasted nuts and a gob of honey.

      Cask bite, a little on the astringent to start but opens very quickly. It's drying but syrupy with some citrus zest and woody black cardamom notes. Anise seed sharpness meets honey sweets and touches of that floral note again, but never too much. Balanced and sweet, cocoa powder tannic notes and some mineral-y stone fruit notes here too.

      Long, surprisingly so, but a little oak heavy. Vanilla Vla and some more of that herbal anise/fennel note developing and a touch of clover honey in the background.

    no good

  4. Gotan scored this whisky 65 points Expert Junior

    Alcohol too evident, it absolutely does not show the declared 20 years, it seems a much more immature whisky. Not even with dilution improves much.

    Cadenhead's tasting notes:
    Nose: Lemon bonbons, cocoa powder, hazelnuts and golden syrup.
    Taste: Very syrupy with lime zest, persimmons, bergamot and a hint of liquorice.
    Finish: Long and syrupy with fennel, basil, lemon and growing runny honey finish.
