  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Blind mystery tasting.
    Ultimately the dry tannic aspect drags this whisky down for me.
    • Nose
      furniture polish; cedar, PX?
    • Taste
      dry with burnt sugar - suggestions of Oloroso instead
    • Finish
      medium but quite teabag like, possibly 18 years

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    On the nose a mixture of cigar box, plum, cinnamon, and red cabbage (wine, cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf, vinegar, sweet). Since only the roast pork is missing. In the mouth then complex wood, tobacco (cigar costs) and sherry fruit notes. On the finish a lot of dark chocolate, menthol. The whisky was great.

  6. Jeep51 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A bit too much for me
    • Nose
      Alcohol to start ... and also after several minutes. Too unbalanced for me this nose although it is interesting: earthy notes, meaty limits, a lot of leather. Very sherry, dry but heavy. After more than thirty minutes, it becomes more interesting: tobacco, leather, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, praline. Better
    • Taste
      Almost tannic. Very sherry of course with coffee, leather, wood and many spices. It's very dry all the same.
    • Finish
      Long. More fruity (raisins) but still dry.

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Prune, raisin, broth (Maggi), red berries, vanilla, mocha, caramel cookie and a vegetal touch. A little whiff of sulphur as well.
    • Taste
      Dark cherry, prune, raisin and nutmeg. Again that touch of sulphur and even a little glue.
    • Finish
      Prune, raisin, date, mocha, bramble and a little smoke.

  8. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    at 60%  lovely
    • Nose
      earthy elements with sweet fine oak aromas, sweet cloves and 

    • Taste
      raisins,orange, tobacco, coffee al the elements are present.
    • Finish
      Spicy and long, mocha hazelnut,rich sweet
