    [November, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle prior to a Jim McEwan tasting at Rheinhotel Dreesen that I bought for 47,50 Deutschmark (24 Euro) in October, 1999.  Of course we spared a dram for Jim that he obviously enjoyed...

    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 87,5.  I took no notes but as far as I remember it was not the worst dram on that night.

  3. p4blo scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A good example of an old-school core range whisky.
    • Nose
      It's always interesting to try these older core range whiskies to get a glimpse on how the style changes over the years. This one is packed with apples, pears, tons of grassy notes, hay, some wet stones, a touch of varnish. Quite rich for its age and alcohol level.
    • Taste
      On the tongue it feels a bit thin, though, but it still nicely delivers flavour-wise. Apples, faint notes of citrus fruits, candy floss, pears, some nice spicy edge. Really nice (given its parameters).
    • Finish
      Slightly too short, a bit spicy and bitterish, but nothing ubearable. Some reminiscent fruitiness, toffee and a touch of clove.

    Green apples on the coast of Loch Indaal. Grassy fresh notes and vanilla fudge. Fruity notes of fresh apples, pears and grass followed by caramel. Slightly woody notes, herbs and again the fresh cutted grass. Rather dry in the finish, something sharp and bitter notes remain. This bottling is OK, nothing special, just good drinkable.
