  1. Allandale scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Body: Lean but silky smooth.
    • Nose
      Deliciously appetizing. A real depth of honey aromas,which seem to emerge in layers, as though each were extracted from a different  flower. Then beeswax. Finally, a balancing flowery dryness and faint burnt-leather smokiness.
    • Taste
      Very slow,sustained emergence of flavours. Firm, dryish, restrained  ,honey,becoming scenty. Gradually giving way to biscuity maltiness. A hint of bitter chocolate. Finally a surge of soft oily smokiness, with some peaty dryness.
    • Finish
      Very long. Hint of anis. Very satisfying.
