  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    orange, honey, chocolate, toffee, quite nice

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Sounds bitterer than he is, I can not really bake very intense oak bitterness with such old things, but he really has premium coffee beans, so the fruitiness of them as a counterpoint to the bitter tone, very nice thing. My personal favorite from the 6x60s flight that evening.
    • Nose
      Dream, like a '50s or early' 60s Macallan, intense orange and ginger jam, full trail mix with dark honey poured over, very aromatic sherry, fresh coffee beans, baked apple, thyme, old chest of drawers, later some potting soil and drier, dark toffee
    • Taste
      A lot of pure espresso, but also nice bitter orange and blood orange in between with shell, dark chocolate, Earl Gray tea with honey in it, chestnut, chestnut honey, candied ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon, the fresh coffee beans
    • Finish
      Still pretty dry and slightly bitter, but with these fresh fruit notes in between, long, warming, greasy
