  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    From the oldest grain distillery in Scotland (1799) and also one of the first which ceased production (1983). Tasted head to head with its sister cask 33038 from the same year. This one is more on the gentle and sweet side.
    • Nose
      Lots of glue, saw dust and pencil shavings for a start. Later on followed with vanilla and dried coconut. Also sultana and a little toffee. Fresh cedar wood at the background.
    • Taste
      Fudge and butterscotch with a metallic edge. Hints of bananas and melon. Lots of cake mix and candy-floss. Ginger bread with cinnamon as well. Robust grain whisky.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Sweetness of cinnamon. A little white pepper. Gentle and soft.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    varnish, vanilla, malt, slightly cooked glue, freshly cleaned leather, the vanilla comes back with the air of having been cooked with a little milk!
    caramel arrives, the wood a little dry, and fruits on mandarin oranges with their zest a little confit!
    a little honey, a little wax and polish coming out of the rag!
    final simple, monolithic but long and intense.
