  5. Glenrothes1973 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Here’s a tip. After pouring, let the whisky breathe in the glass for at least 45-60 minutes. Also, add water. More than one would expect for an old whisky at only 45,6%. If you do, you will be rewarded with an excellent dram. Old-school sherry, with all the fine chocolate and leather notes you would expect. It actually reminded me of a ‘50’s Antiquary. Great stuff!

  7. Simon Stood scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Chic, dense, full-bodied and varied nose. Cake with fruits. 22.5
    The taste is quite sharp, despite the low degree. Dried fruits in chocolate without sugar. 22
    The finish is long, peppermint. 22

  10. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A nice dram, I got from a friend. Enough to discover to get to an average 88 points I think. When I taste a dram, I always think would I buy this one myself? In this case, yes I would.

      First impression 87 but after a drop of water it opened up and now 89 to my opinion.
    • Taste

      Mouth full of flavours, very nice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long finish with some spices at the top of the tongue and light sherry tones at the palet.

  12. Cubey666 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    according to the Whiskybase Shop, this duck contains whisky way earlier than 2001:"

    "This Blended malt states an age of 18-Years-Old. But don't let this age fool you! This Blended malt contains malts from the 1960s and 1970s. This is probably a fair amount, considering it's bottled at 45,6% Cask Strength.

    Matured in a sherry butt, especially for the sherry lovers out there. "

    will open mine soon and have a taste.
