  1. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    It is old, it is classy, it is full of flavour, but remains elegant dignified throughout and does not fail to disappoint.
    • Nose
      Noses like a liqueur, herring cherry liqueur topped off with Chambord black raspberry. The cherries carry on, firm with thick skins, not the juicy soft cherries that's for sure. Some dust from the dunnage this whisky sat in since 1970. Old oak notes arrive with a touch of ginger root spice. Oranges begin to appear, heavy on the skin.
      After first sip it all takes a turn, grapes appear with an apparent nose of red wine.
    • Taste
      Picture the scene, sitting in an old study, sunk in a leather chair next to a roaring fire with a glass of sherry in hand. Notes of leather, old wooden bookcases, musky tweed. Touches of liqueurs are lingering in the palate as well, but they are just one of the support cast.
      With time the fruity edge picks up, the dark fruits with hints of orange zest and sour citrus.
    • Finish
      Drying, red wine, a bordeaux even. Drying, but not as dry as one would expect after 40years in oak. Very long, woody but still staying true to the dark summer fruits which were found in the earlier parts of this dram.

  2. Medea scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    slight sticky nose with sour cherries, some marzipan and a bit alcoholic. Strong on the palate, light dryness, coconut, dark fruits. An eventful old dark longmorn
