  1. Dirk scored this whisky 88 points Super Administrator

    Nice nose, improving up from nose towards finish. Surprised by the nice flavours at a lower ABV. Good one!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Old library, leather, honey, dried fruits, stewed apples. Brambles, figs, hazelnuts. A faint smoky aspect (which is very nice!) Walnuts and a touch of menthol.

      Delivers on the expectations from the nose: leather, honey, ripe apples, figs. Stewed apples (jammy), very drinkable. A bit of spices emerging.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long finish, stewed and dried fruits. Honey and again the stewed apples. Little bit of wood and peppery but all within good limits and adding a layer to this nice whisky.

    The nose is hazelnut and figs, raisins, honey and Christmas spices. The taste is thick and chewy, peppery but honey-sweet as well with a tart touch of lemon zest and a hint of mint. The finish is warming and sweet with a slight tartness.

  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and malty aroma, green apple, orange juice, apricot, peat, vanilla and fudge. Vanilla sweet taste, apple jam, cardamom, mint and malt. Medium long, herbal and malty end.

    Love this 30 year old definitely one to break out with close friends to share
    • Nose
      aromas of fresh fruits like apricots, white peaches and orange.
    • Taste
      Well balanced with sherry and smooth, hints of banana and vanilla pudding
    • Finish
      Warm for a brief moment and subtle sweet tones to follow of cinnamon and spices like ginger and traces of white pepper

    The nose has a full and round bouquet of sherry, a classic taste more sherry, very balanced, lots of fresh fruits. Body is wonderfully done, more sherry throughout and at 43%abv very drinkable with friends. The finish is nice but could be longer for 30 year old, however the brand does a nice job on the product, classic, well done. Price and presentation are great.

    This is OK, if you don`t want to spend big bucks buying the real thing like some of the real vintages, this would be a great back up. I posted a couple links to buy it.
