    Typo alert! I had to redesign the labels for technical reasons. And I didn’t change Hogshead to Butt. The 1983 is a butt. Sorry for the typo and confusion.

    Good old style whisky.
    Whiskynerds bottlings have been quite good in the recent past. The 21 & 23 yo Springbanks and the Caol ila were all good. The springbank 23 is a GREAT one.
    They released this 35 yo secret highland along with a 31 yo secret highland as well.
    Colour: Pale yellow. Soft citrus.
    Nose: Waxy. Chalky. Subtle fruitiness. Some oak. Mild tobacco & betel nut flavours. Chamoise leather. Mild citrus notes.
    Palate: Full, oily and waxy. A little peppery note. Tea. Meadows. Betel leaves and some tobacco. Superb. Quite layered. Some bittersweet herbs. Minty notes but more like mint in the mint dark chocolates.
    Finish: Quite long. Oakiness with some dried bananas. Mouth coating & excellent.
    This style of whisky is always good. Old style with so much complexities that’s quite layered. Brilliant whisky. A good find by whiskynerds. I picked 2 bottles based on my experience with whiskynerds’ bottlings and quite happy with my decision.

  10. thijs100 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Warming and inviting, with soft notes of beeswax and green grape juice, but also honey and a touch of sultanas. Some port-stewed pears, and also a touch of ripe apple. Well-rounded and showing off its maturity.
    • Taste
      Subtle spices (mainly black pepper) and with a touch of Earl Grey, slightly bitter. There's a medium waxiness and a nice honeyed mouthfeel, followed by sweet breakfast cereals. Fairly herbacious too, as well as touches of oak. You have to search for it, but I find whiffs of nectarines and peach as well.
    • Finish
      An encore of the spices. There's a faint dryness as well.
