  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I like this malt on the nose best - great tropical fruity profile. On the palate and in the finish, spicy elements and a bitter oak set the tone. Overall tasty, considering the age and the price, I would have expected more, therefore not a large bottle candidate.
