  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Really nice oldschool fat, just 70s stuff, it's hard to find something bad over 20 years. That it is more fruity and sweeter in the mouth than in the nose is just fine, has 0 miss notes everything.
    • Nose
      Nice oldschool, lots of fine oak barrel comes through, typical Fettercairn, cereals, round malt, all sorts of corny varieties, autumn leaves, red apple, peach, honey, Toffifee, cocoa powder, lavender
    • Taste
      Also here nicely stale in positive, much orange, fruity as the nose would suggest, if not a fruit bomb, peach, cereals, round and slightly sweet malt, toffee, rosemary, brown sugar, Earl Gray tea, cinnamon, later even some papaya
    • Finish
      Sweet malt, orange zest, cereals, herbal honey, medium to long

  4. harry scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    an good old (stillmans) dram! But there are other bottlings that have much more expression and power on the palate!
    • Nose
      Fruits, less berries, malt, less wood, bread with dry fruits
    • Taste
      fruits, malt, different wooden notes, full-bodied
    • Finish
      warm malty notes, wood, dry smoke, dry, middle-long - disappears suddenly
