10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.83 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty stuff, tasty, velvety - the current bottling is, on the other hand, more original, more edgy, but also more complex, more versatile. Nice review in my beginners time.
    • Nose
      when pouring in and from afar a nice apricot and Mirabellennote, from nearby then mild-spicy, dry, gingerbread, milk chocolate, wooden pencil, a touch of leather
    • Taste
      velvety, sweet, despite 40% rather full-bodied and intense, molasses, chocolate - with time in the mouth increases the cocoa content
    • Finish
      long, mjam - a lot of cocoa, kamillan, some licorice

  3. Albaron scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Convincing, the alcohol irritates for 40%, but goes well with the character, which is already strong, nice sherry aroma, very balanced. Easy to drink
    • Nose
      Toffee, sherry, brown cane sugar, but noticeable alcohol, a bit bitter, slightly malty, a sour undertone, a touch of herbal mix, raisins, prunes and some leather
    • Taste
      slight pepper spiciness, a little subliminal alcohol, but then immediately toffee, sherry, here too the brown cane sugar, a touch of forest honey, slightly sour, the raisins are also very present here through the whole taste experience, a little oak herbs lead to the finish
    • Finish
      The raisins are still there, along with the oak herbs and a few tannins

    Nice sherried whisky. Although it feels a little weak, there's still enough to discover. Pleasant for sure, a style of whisky we cannot find anymore these days, which makes it extra pleasant.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very attractive nose, clear sherry notes: red fruits, leather, some oily, gasoline. Raisins, very floral as well.
    • Taste
      83 83
      A little pickering, mostly smooth. Red fruits, berries, some leather, milk chocolate. A little thin mouthfeel though.
      There's also some typical older maltstyle now.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Very smooth and soft, milk chocolate, red fruits, berries. A little thin, but somehow the red fruity notes remain for pretty some time.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    So this old bottling, bought in 1996 in the old bottle, is super yummy, soft and with a lot of honey sweetness. The new ones are really bad against it.

  6. Dieter_W scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice part I like him very much
    • Nose
      Jau, fruity on the nose, many peaches, apricots, pineapple, pears and mirabelle plums. I feel a little smoke in the background.
    • Taste
      The taste goes one step further. Very intense oily and full. Not thin at all It could also be more than 40% Again, light soapy that many do not like Edradour.
    • Finish
      medium for a 10 with 40 vol. but ok.

  9. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I have always liked these older 10 year olds, well worth seeking out and much better than newer versions.
    • Nose
      Pleasant on a little dark chocolate, coffee, touches of melon and orange and rich syrupy steamed sponge.
    • Taste
      Very easy drinking, on sherried chocolate, hints of caramel and as on the nose sponge pudding of syrup/tracle/
    • Finish
      Pretty long on refined sherry.

  10. Feusi scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Honey and sweet malt with a surprisingly long finish. Some sweet spices, chocolate and maybe some coffee? Very pleasant to drink, remember me a bit on Aberlour 10yo and a Rosebank F&F.
