  1. hs305 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2004]  I emptied a bottle that I bought for 89,50 Euro in December, 2003.

    [October, 2008]  Finally I emptied a bottle that I bought for 92,50 Euro in September, 2004.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85 and 82,5.  My notes state a totally weird sour taste as if the sherry in the cask turned into vinegar already (so the cask was slightly rotten).  I used these bottles to demonstrate this effect to friends and visitors.  Nevertheless this whisky is drinkable, just very strange it is...
