  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Unbelievable that this one was distilled in 2008, it completely seems like distillate from the 1970s.

    Can’t say it much better than “KayMeertens.” Quite enjoyable, and older than its years!

  14. grinface scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice and sweet with lots of bakery and zitric fruits. Some whipped cream on top. Great!
    And also a lot of salt it seems... if it was SMWS I would say Coastal Lemon Cake. ;-)
