  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Ah, a dream come true. What a sensational whisky. But with a price tag of 2.700 GBP, I will (probably) never be able to add a full bottle to my collection. I do hope, though, to be able to get my hands on a sample of cask 480 as well, as this is rumored by insiders to be even better (hint, hint).
    • Nose
      My expectation was to have a lot of wood on the nose, but that is not the case. This is succulent and fruity with ripe gooseberry, pear, lime peel. Also acacia honey, pecan nuts, marzipan, mango, passion fruit and a bit of mint. Some tobacco leaves and buttered toast in the background. Yes, this is wonderfully complex and surprisingly fresh for such an auldie.
    • Taste
      The wood speaks more loudly on the palate, emphasizing the age. A lot of drying tannins and resin precede a great fruity and sweet explosion of mandarin, pink grapefruit and ditto zest, drenched in light caramel and sprinkled with brown sugar. Green tea. Feisty with cloves and eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      The finish is short to medium in length, silky soft with the oak in perfect balance with the resin and mint. Outstanding.

    "Producer`s Tasting Notes
    Many

    years of dedication and patience by the distillery craftsmen has

    resulted in a single malt which is rich copper gold in color with the

    gentle aromas of warm, sweet honey, barley sugar and fresh lemon zest,

    beautifully complemented by cool hints of eucalyptus.On the palate creme caramel combines wonderfully with dry, subtle notes of oak.The finish is exquisite; long, lingering and perfectly balanced."
