  2. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    hmm in the beginning a bit thin; restrained character
    Oak dominates something
    • Nose
      sweet, light banana, light oak, sherry, vanilla sugar
    • Taste
      soft on the palate, settles around the tongue
      slightly smoke, oak is more, Grannysmith, licorice is more, slightly cinnamon, nuts, herbal spices
    • Finish
      long
      good oak and gets stronger, browned apple, spicy

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A firm and smooth body.
    • Nose
      Elements beautiful  combined. Depth of flowery aromas.Very light touch of fresh peatiness. Some sweetness and a hint of sherryish oak. Lightly appetizing.
    • Taste
      Flowery and sweet at first, then developing peach-stone nuttiness.
    • Finish
      Dry,appetizing. Very long, with interplay of sweet and bitter flavours.

  5. hartist scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Here is a rich and round nose that takes you to breakfast on Sunday: jammy fruits (oranges, pineapple), cereals and biscuits, spices, vanilla honey, butter and a vegetal touch (pot pourri, humus). Hmm, a touch of viandox?
    • Taste
      It is a balanced dram where fruity notes (flambé bananas, apricots, chocolate orangettes), spicy (sweet), woody and vegetal (if, if) intertwine in a soft matter, rather robust and a little buttered. Very nice all this.
    • Finish
      Persistent, warm and rich finish, on spices and a sweet bitterness.

  6. peatbogger scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    More sophistication and finesse than the 12 and 15yo, so in a sense it is a little more value for your money.

  8. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I prefer the older 18 year versions to the latest by far.
    • Nose
      Sherry notes, balsamic vinegar, chocolate digestive biscuits.
    • Taste
      Quite thick and syrupy and it is also quite oaky. There is some toffee and bitter cooking apples with also notes of cooked meats.
    • Finish
      Medium length with a bitter sweet spicy finish.

    Score is for a bottle from around 2003
