  1. Hemdl scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Honestly - the regular 30s I like better. How this comes to a rating of over 95 points, I am a mystery. The perfumed / soapy note heals the taste and finish in a certain way, even if the nose is really great.
    • Nose
      It reminds me spontaneously of the 30th Highland Park of 2007. Dense aromas of tropical fruits, a wonderfully sweet weave of subtle spicy oak, some green apples and creamy vanilla sauce. No trace of smoke, even the 35% still quite strong alcohol content of 50% not noticeable. Despite the ripeness fresh, the oak becomes more present in the glass with time.
    • Taste
      On the tongue already significantly more in the direction of spicy oak, the fruity aromas now a little more restrained. A perfumed, slightly soapy touch mixes with that, which really should not have been and reminds me a bit of older Bowmore. A few sweeter honey flavors are still there between the oak and the only remotely perceptible fruits.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy, unfortunately also here with a noticeable soapy touch. The alcohol but also perfectly integrated, no trace of dryness or bitterness, despite the age.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Lots of wood, spiced and fruits. Vanilla, lemon candy, and some earthiness. The fruity notes blend very well with smoke. Pleasant nose
    • Taste
      85 85
      Some fruit still present together with coffee cake, seasalt, nuts, zest and spiced wood. Cardboardy and soapy notes break it up, and with water these becomes more accentuated
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium. Smoke, spices, vanilla cake, faint earthy notes, syrup. The perfume/soapy notes are very present till the end
