  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Tasted after Local Barleys 1970 and 1967. It's about ten years older, and 9% older.

    The nose is a cut above. It has a depth and a balance still above.
    • Nose
      96 96
      The nose is fantastic. We have an explosion of exotic fruits, accompanied by a superb freshness, and a superb woody frame.
      Passion fruit, papaya, kumquat, tangerine, banana, granny apple. A real fruit salad.
      Sweet lemon candy to suck.
      The fruity tension is really heady.
      Milk chocolate, white chocolate, honey, wax. White pepper.
      Light tobacco, dry wood. A nice freshness is brought by touches of camphor.
    • Taste
      94 94
      In the mouth, it is a continuation of the nose, a little more austere.
      The fruit is less bright. The passion fruit remains predominant, followed by citrus fruits, green apple, kiwi.
      We still have those spicy notes of wood, with white chocolate, cinnamon, cloves. And as on the nose, the freshness of camphor.
      As a final touch, we have a little cold smoke ash.
    • Finish
      94 94
      Long finish on white pepper, exoticism, liquorice, cloves, cold ash, tobacco.

  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Another brilliant lb66, an explosion of fruits, tropical, yellow, candied fruits, honey, varnish, just excellent
