  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 157 bottles from cask no. 456

    A rich orange gold colour, almost “Irn Bru” with a soft but persistent, mousse-like beading. A cacophony of fruits on the nose with an overriding lime pickle. Then, oil paints, furniture polish and candied cumquats. Changing all the time, now breakfast tropical juice laden with pineapple chunks, mango and pawpaw. Sweet to taste, becoming more dry with a long, oaky finish (unreduced). A little water brings up an unusual waxiness, vanilla fudge, and Scotch trifle – sponge fingers and tinned peaches soaked in brandy with custard and cream (artificial) and sprinkled with Hundreds and Thousands. A lovely, soft mouthfeel, starting sweet then drying to a long, long finish with a hint of “old smoke”. Very special.

  2. alectron scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Slightly moody as it seems, sometimes utterly brilliant, sometimes a bit underwhelming, especially when seeing age & price. Seemed to fare better in tastings next to others.
    • Nose
      old and fresh at the same time, nice balance of sherry w dried plums, malt & honey, chocolate & lemon, some leather, also a slightly floral / tropical note w some coconut and some beeswax/resin in the back that greatly add to depth and balance when they appear. (88/92)
    • Taste
      sherry, chocolate syrup, tobacco, pears & some faint tropical fruit juice, (91).
      Later: occasionally there's a slightly rubbery note on the palate (88)
    • Finish
      more sherry & chocolate, slightly rum-y, malty, coconut, icing sugar, honey (89/93)
