Whisky Reviews for Highland Fusilier 21-year-old GM

- [July, 2005] Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 86 Euro in July, 2005.
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 92,5. My notes state an unbelievably complex and multi-layered vat of malts all distilled before 1957 (as it was bottled in 1978 at an age of 21 years). Dangerously quaffable...
By the way, all these different tercentenary bottlings contain the same vat, just the labels are different.
- A lot of orange, honey, complex tropical fruit on the nose. In the mouth a massive, intense start for 40%, full fruit platter here too. Extremely long finish. Great!
- When I first opened this I was a bit disappointed, It seamed a bit rough, harsh. Now its been open 2 to 3 months I really like this. It seems smoother and very moreish Its more like an older Macallan. I think there has to be some old Macallan sherry casks in this. 91 points
leather, oak and sweet sherry
oak, woody in a good way, sherry, nutty, almonds, well matured sherry cask whisky
finish is short to medium, sherry and oak mostly and just a hint of peat. It leaves your mouth slightly dry.
