3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.15 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    He needs his time in the glass. But you should treat the malt, because after a while, he's doing really well. With its mild smoke, it looks set and "elegant". Sounds pretty worn, but is meant entirely positive.

      Fine smoke, pleasantly naseschmeichelnd, not intrusive. Salt, seaweed, licorice and pepper. Red, juicy and meaty apple, peppered with cloves. Mineral, sea flavors - but the juicy apple keeps coming forward. Moist, loamy soil. Chocolate, honey. Freshly cut wood.

      Oily onset. Almonds, milk chocolate, toffee, fine smoke. I would like to be a bit smokier, but understand that after 18 years not so much is left. Fits. Fresh wood. Warm applesauce with spices. Mineral, malty. Bread dough with yeast. Old leather (interesting in interaction with the fresh wood). Vanilla, caramelized sugar.
    • Finish

      Dry and medium long. In the finish, one then notices the 18 years: the wood note makes a more elderly impression, plus leather and tobacco, raisin bread.

  3. Palindrome scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This would have been a really strong year aside from one off cask that got into the batch with a touch of mildew in the wood.
