  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Let's try another Banff after the gorgeous 1975 DMA expression (WB 11257). This baby was bottled by Cadenhead in its 'rocket fuel' green bottles Authentic Collection era of the mid-1990s. Therefore, the alcohol remains rather dominant.
    • Nose
      Starts very alcoholic and sharp off course. Lots of acidic notes gooseberries, lemon and kiwi fruit. Followed by cider and apple-mint. Hints of dry straw and lavender. Floral notes of orange blossoms and orchards as well. Light smoke in the background.
    • Taste
      Fierce, hot and spicy mouthfeel with pineapple cubes and lime, developing into bitter-sour oranges, grapefruits and green olives. Some undertones of vanilla and juniper berries. But also wasabi and nettle. It's all quite creamy and waxy but not very complex.
    • Finish
      Medium long with black pepper, nutmeg and clove. Pine and eucalyptus in the end. Not the most balanced whisky around.
