  1. Highlander65 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Color: gold, strangely clear for a whiskey of this age
    • Nose
      80 80
      The nose is immediately surprising, I was expecting something very spicy and woody and instead I feel notes of varnish, unripe fruit, in the long run a little wax comes out.
    • Taste
      85 85
      On the palate it certainly fascinates me more, with a clear note of rum chocolate
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium-long finish

  5. Izzino scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This is a great treat on the nose. Plums, dark jam, chocolate. Do not notice the character of grain whiskey at all in the scent. However, it is very clear in the taste - straight forward. The taste profile is very sweet to liqueur, but at the same time wood and leather reveal the old age of this doll. If he was in Ruma's court, I'd believe it right away. It has a rum sugar effect. really great. It's very nice to look at. Flavored banana, popcorn, vanilla, butter. No one would believe that it has 60%. Maybe 43%. Great super show.

  10. Armando did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Notes:

    This dram blossoms delightfully in the glass - pear drops and botanical glasshouses shift to candles, kumquats and polished oak; always the sunny sweetness of golden syrup, runny honey and salted caramel. The palate has a cat's cradle of tensioned textures and flavours; sweet viscosity (honey, barley sugars, cherries dipped in dark chocolate) and drying hints of mace, orange zest and cinnamon. Water wakens the nose to childhood memories of candy floss, tablet and freshly made toffee apples. The palate remains mouth-coatingly delicious - condensed milk and buttery vanilla fudge - the finish rewards with the dry bitterness of espresso, pencil shavings, redcurrant jelly and bergamot.
