  1. StephanB scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Playing with plenty of water, those who fail to do so will miss the best thing about this whisky! For me as a Blair Athol lover one of the top 10, but not an easy dram. And no, even if another commentator sees it differently: First in the Bourbon cask made of American oak, then a finish in the Malmsey Madeira cask made of American oak (the label is incorrectly printed!). Far and wide no (!!!) sherry !!!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Citrus peels, citrus fruits, earthy tones, burnt nuts, lovage, vanilla, reminds very slightly of rye whisky
    • Taste
      90 90
      Citrus fruits, light wood, burned nuts, vanilla, light sweetness, nicely balanced, some Rye spice again; Water lets something of the distillery character shine through
    • Finish
      89 89
      medium length, slight sweetness, slight bitterness

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Strong and intense whisky, clear sherry notes. With some patience it gets more intense, very enjoyable one.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Very fruity, red fruits, prunes, very prominent alcohol. Citrus as well, oranges, and later on a lot of chocolate too.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Strong, pepper, tickering, intense. Fruity and sweet, peach, oranges, some vanilla, and milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Still strong and powerful, pepper. Oranges, some bitterness as well, orange zest. Middle long. Later on it gets more intense. Then the bitterness of dark chocolate remains pretty long.

    • Nose
      83 83
      Orange peel, citrus, the scent of the Greek fruit kumquat .. earthy tones. Nuts.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Pepper, citrus nuts, some wood in the distance ..
    • Finish
      80 80
      Kind after burner ..
      The finish seems pretty, but before you know it it is gone .. the pepper sticks a little longer than the citrus ..
