  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Distilled in the 40s. Very pretty. Beautiful old blend but with a bit too acidity for me.
    • Nose
      Quite exotic nose, pineapple, mango, papaya.
      Camphor, plum brandy. Apricot, a lot of acidic plum. A slightly steep woody.
    • Taste
      Apricot, peach, sugar cherry, plum, pineapple skin, papaya. A good dose of camphor and rancio. Smoke, plum
    • Finish
      Finale on plum, fresh apple, peat, rancio and obe. Very pretty.
