  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful, sweet malt with a slight vintage charm, absolutely 0 missing notes, rarely had such a sweetness with malt already bottled in the 80s, which was not overlaid by OB flavor.
    • Nose
      Very sweet nose, apricots and peaches overrun with a kilo of honey, has more of a double cask bourbon + sherry in the nose, the sherry notes hide well, chamomile, tick orange peel, toffee, marzipan, pears, tick sweet tobacco
    • Taste
      Pears, physalis, all kinds of yellow fruits, peach, apricot, lemon zest, tangerine and chamomile, green tea, light malt, sweet grasses and rosemary
    • Finish
      Rosemary still, light malt with some cereals in honey, apple chips, medium length

  2. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: honey, fruit, vanilla, apple pie with crumble, apple leaf, cinnamon, soft, velvet, creamy Taste: less sweet, apple and oak, vanilla Finish: medium, apple and honey, clear and dry oak - too much oak in the finish, sherry is not present
