    • Nose
      89 89
      Quite dry, some plain oakiness, still a lot of Springbank funkiness, raw root vegetables, chalks, waxes, there are also citrus fruits. There is gentle sherry influence, some dried apricots, a lot of chocolate spices.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Quite smooth and oily, a lot of sweet oranges, very fruity and mouthwatering, tomato leaves, orange flavoured chocolates, a lot of cocoa, roasted golden barley, very very enjoyable. Some of the very best sherry influence, not overpowered at all.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Medium to long, a lot of chocolate spices mixed with dried oranges.

  2. OJK scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    My first experience of tasting one of the old local barleys, and it’s a whole other level (perhaps many levels) to the modern day local barleys, as much as I love them too. So many layers of unique flavour, which sadly I didn’t get to spend as much time with as I’d have liked given it was just 1cl at a whisky show, but still it was easily one of the most memorable drams I’ve tried.

    Tasted at Old and Rare 2020. 65s LB not as brilliant as 66s but a faultless dram.
