  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Tasted at the 2nd Whiskybase Gathering in Rotterdam, November 2017.On the nose quite full and intense. on the taste rather present with a little bit of dirty sidenote.

    nice dram, but not superb in my book.

  2. BXpress scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    sample.

    Quite good. Not among the best of the 90s though.
    • Nose
      Quite mineral and salty with strong but soft vanilla notes. Slightly herbal, and some nice hints of wax. The nose is very well interwoven. Slightly more interesting when dilluted. More mineral and faintly farmy. I prefer it without water though.
    • Taste
      Strong arrival on earthy and slightly peppery notes. Again that soft vanilla coating. Overripe apples notes in the development mixed with salt. Slightly herbal before the end. Get's cleaner with water, but also a little fizzy. Again, better when undilluted.
    • Finish
      Rather medium long. Hint of roots, slightly drying and more vanilla. Salty after taste.

    Colour: Straw
    Nose: Clean, fresh, slightly floral, on barley, heather, honey,
    and some smoke. Rather complex.
    Taste: Sweet, spicy, fragrant, waxy to very
    waxy, on honey, heather, ginger and some aromatic peat. The finish is medium,
    with big spicy notes, fresh, fragrant, on liquorice root, honey and heater, with
    some aromatic peat smoke.
    Impression: A version close to the official 1991 or
    the 1991 of malts of Scotland.
