  1. Whiskydudes scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Simply one of the best whisky's I've ever enjoyed. This is just amazing stuff, all in perfect balance, no flaws and what a fantastic finish! Everyone that has a bottle closed for investment reasons; fuck it, just open the bottle and enjoy. You will remember this one forever.....

    • Nose
      Syrupy and fruity, more red and black fruits, tropical fruits are here but played a side role. Some oaky flavors often find in the port wood. A touch of flints and rubber but add the complexity. Huge leather and chocolates.
    • Taste
      Bitter coffee, lots of fruits, very jammy, blueberries and cherries, still some tropical fruits, such as stewed papaya. Lots of camphor as well.
    • Finish
      Long bitter finish, cigar leaves, and chocolates, coconut oil, and soy sauce.

    Nose: Dark chocolate, Soy sauce, Balsamic vinegar, the nose is rich and so much going on, liquorice root, expresso and leather. Cola cubes and dark plum skins, Black olives.
    Palate: A very juicy and dark fruits on the first impressions on the palate, sherried fruits stewing in their juices a hit of oak comes through, dark soya sauce, those dark wine gums sweets and it keeps going. Lovely whisky, wish I had more of this, Slainte!

    Tasted at the Old & Rare Whisky Show 2021 in the Longmorn Masterclass, (Dram No. 6 of 6)

    Amazing dialogue of sweetness in the beginning and mature barrel aromas on the palate and aftertaste. Like a double espresso with a lot of sugar. Smooth mouthfeel. The Port appears very long after the sip has gone.

    [April, 2000]  I had this dram during a "Taste the difference" tasting at Rolandsbogen.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 92,5 points.  My notes state a very intense and complex nose with a sound wooden structure.  It improves further with water on the palate.  This was my first fully port cask matured whisky and I liked it very much.

    By the way, this is not a port finish - the whisky matured in the port cask for 25 long years.
