  1. sengaia scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    The nose is boring but not offensive. Soft vanilla notes, not much else. The palate is where it gets very rough and hot. Sweet oak, cardboard, glue. The finish is the burn left by the very hot spirit. One to skip.

  5. dramspotter scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    a rather similar theme to other old CCs where the palate is rather lacking interest. This might be the passage of time in the bottle, but I have to judge as I experience it now.
    • Nose
      certainly oozes age; that sitting in the bottle for a very long time doing nothing. Oranges with cloves, dust; starts to clear a bit and become more lemon
    • Taste
      hot, not too much orange to start
    • Finish
      furring and sucking moisture, finish short to start but that dryness of the mouth remains, so medium but not necessarily in a great way; quite bitter
