    * Tasted it in June 2013 at a masterclass by Gordon Dundas ( Brand Ambassadeur of Bowmore, Auchentoshan and Glen Garioch) found some old notes.

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    It's sweet, malty, a little flat too. Fruits too discreet, a little honey. On the palate, sweet but also spicy. Touch of mouth quite pleasant, but a bit stingy in aromas. Lack of fullness for a 21 year old in the final.

    Enthusiasm 2/5

    N-
    Pleasantly complex, burst of creme caramel at first, then banana and starfruit drift by with dark fruits quick to
    follow and add to the depth. Hints of metallic and cool steel.

    P- Much spicy with more wood coming through, sweet caramel coated thin coffee. Hint of bitter-gourd at the tail. F- Long and smooth, light texture but hold up the rich flavours well. A
    return of honey fragrant with spicy pepper, curious vegetal of
    bitter-gourd appeared again at the end. Best in their core range.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    At the first tasting I was skeptical, but after a few more sips I have to admit that it is an interesting and balanced drink, it probably is not entirely for me and I would like to say that the price is overstated due to the performance
    • Nose
      Fine, sweet-brewed-travites, honey, malt, polish for furniture. There is also the mint and the light traces of woodyness that I would expect of a much stronger one for 21 years in a barrel
    • Taste
      Highly sweet with hints of grass - woody, vanilla, malt, more acidic fruit with honey and light spicy
    • Finish
      In reverberation, woodiness, malt and soft spices - medium-long
