  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    in his time (1984) it was the regular "21-year-old" - a beautiful, gentle, ripe malt - very good - compared to current 21-year-olds I see him clearly ahead!
    • Nose
      mild, sweet, juicy raisins, strawberries, some wood;
    • Taste
      soft and supple, creamy, fruity, some caramel, wood, old spicy oak;
    • Finish
      a medium-long finish, woody, oak, quite dry; tannins aftertaste;

  2. Malthead19 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    - an old, venerable whisky, but not quite
    - yes, very old, but on the whole quite subtle
    - for currently 300 to 400 € by far not worth the price
    - is a nice experience, but nothing more
    • Nose
      sweetish, raisins, rum pot, ripe berries, strawberries, mild, wood, on the whole very subtle overall impression
    • Taste
      at first a shallow, soft start then becoming stronger, creamy, old spicy oak, forest berries,
    • Finish
      medium-long dry finish;
      long, dry, bitter aftertaste with lots of oak

  4. checkpointuk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Color: pale gold / yellow
    Nose: Delicate fruit of orange and lime. Add mint, minimal seasoning and wet paper. Now it's getting difficult: what else? Balanced and quite thin, but nothing else!
    Taste: Soft, round and sweet! Tea aromas, plums, honey, sugar and getting sweeter. Dull, earthy and salty notes with lined cardboard box. Somewhat bland and one-dimensional towards the finish.
    Finish: Relatively short - fades tea, honey, caramel, leather, cardboard, oak and with delicate, dark fruit notes.
    Note: Flattened and bland tea aromas dominate the taste.
    85 points (nose: 86 / taste: 83 / finish: 86)
