  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Not promising on the nose either, but very well-rounded overall spectacle, nice finish with apple peel too.
    • Nose
      Grapes, a bit characterless overall, light raisins, some honey, some malt, some oak, yeah, not that much going on otherwise, subtle heather grass still, hint of wax and salt, you definitely notice the %, but they don't transport much
    • Taste
      Honey, cereals, grapes and light raisins, round oak and round malt, still lacking character, but composed much nicer, lots of wax, beeswax like candle wax, heather grass and salt, some ginger and lemongrass
    • Finish
      Lemongrass, ginger, citrus zest and beeswax, grapes, long, warm, round

  4. ThorstenH scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    First thought: Oh, I should have dusted him off first. One senses immediately that it was distilled many years ago. It's not varied enough for me to give it a higher rating.
    • Nose

      Dusty and old sherry. Simply sublime.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Despite the 57%, the alcohol is barely noticeable. The nose continues here.
    • Finish
      86 86
      This is where it gets a bit bland. Not bitter but dry.
