  1. MacAustria scored this whisky 96 points Member Senior

    Wonderful taste, fruity aroma with a smoky aftertaste. Sensational with a cigar! Great value for money. One of the best ballechins I've tried.

  2. el Gato scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Had this one blind. A very interesting dram. My guess in The end was initially Springbank due to The slight funkiness similar to The Springbank one. The funkiness was probably The wine Cask, if anything. Quickly shifted to islay and PC / Bruichladdich though. Guessed 15 yo and 53-55%.
