  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    You’ll look at my score and likely be offended on this Grains behalf. It’s 37 years old, how can you be so callous? There is no love here... this was fired into a used up barrel 37 years ago and forgotten about. Little romance has happened in the barrel since then and it’s left with an impressive age statement and nothing more. I’m sorry this just tastes like generic grain whisky that could be 10 years old. Boom, roasted!

      It doesn’t smell 37 years old. Loads of vanilla, acetone, pennies, tin. Wow I don’t mean to dump on something so old, but it’s like an old Canadian whisky; where you are paying for the number on the bottle, but if the contents are meh, then what’s the point? This nose does not impress me at all.

      Gummy bears, white pepper, vanilla and aluminum. Thin, a bit of wood glue, acetone. Very hot, even considering 51%

      Flashes of stone fruits (Peach), thin, white pepper, ginger powder, tinny, vanilla, cayenne. Nothing to get excited over.

  3. praisethepasta did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Perhaps a bit sweet for some, but this is a lovely whisky, very clean and very elegant. It’s not the most complex whisky I’ve ever tried, but it’s a wonderful example of how spirit and wood can work together to create something very, very pleasant.
    • Nose
      soft and gentle. We’re talking breakfast cereals here. Honey, preserved fruit (apricot) and even fruit liqueur. Marzipan and almonds, definitely, and some vanilla and icing sugar and milk chocolate. The funny thing is, all that sweetness never becomes overly sugary sweet, overall there’s more of a floral sweetness going on, in fact.
    • Taste
      noticeably more driven by spices – nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, sitting on top on those cereal and marzipan notes. It’s medium full on the mouth, and again the sweetness is a bit of a ‘fille rouge’ throughout, but like on the nose, it comes across as a natural sweetness from almonds or vanilla.
    • Finish
      long and dry, and softly fading out on sugared almonds.
