  1. nallacam scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    For me, it's 85 points, as it's a solid standard, with some old school key.
    At least at the first tasting, I could not detect any false notes.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Old School, oiled plank floor, light resin, lemon, grapefruit, pumpernickel, cereals, malt
    • Taste
      84 84
      fruity, harmonious, sweet, not complex
    • Finish
      84 84
      medium length, round, light

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    From a relatively full 50ml bottle, but it still could have gone bad. Judging from the low scores... maybe not. I decided to open to see if I want to bid for a full bottle on one of the auction sites... No thanks.
    • Nose
      Damp, dungy, old books, burnt plastics... interesting, but not a good combo methinks.
    • Taste
      Taste very young, grassy, glue and plastic. Mineral, slightly bitter, some off flavors.
    • Finish
      Short, and with the weird combination of flavors, that's probably a good thing.

  4. Feusi scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Caramel and vanilla on the nose, honey-sweet with a touch of smoke and sea. Yesterday and today, a dram from Scapa is always worth the time.
