  1. Totoro scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Love the waxiness on display here.

    Even better when reduced by an additional one or two percentage points (but be careful not to overdo it).

    It's a bit of a letdown that the glorious fruitiness from the nose doesn't reappear in the finish.

      Pineapple porn.
    • Taste
      90 90
      See above, plus honeydew melon, guava, slightly tart herbs and spices – everything slathered in creamy vanilla.
    • Finish
      88 88
      See above again, plus loose tobacco. Weirdly short, though.

      I also find it less all-out fruity here than in the nose and on the palate, and surprisingly, it packs a bit of a bite.

    This whisky is for people who like old bourbon aging.
    A whisky that is given 91 points from a 2cl sample is actually a whisky that is given a good one or two points more from an open bottle, from which you refill it several times, because it is so tasty then.
    And I'm sure it's the same here. It's pretty much perfect for the key data and I would bet on Glen Grant ripening.

    Of course, only idiots would pay 300 euros for such a bottle, but for me it still scores between 90 and 91.5 points and a good 200 euros. Not that much happens here (apart from the first ten minutes), but what is there is beautiful.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Wonderful nose after a perfect bourbon maturation with honey, juicy melon, cereals in Kellogssmags and that in whole milk.
      Butter cookies with vanilla.
      Great harmony, 31 years and just under 50 percent. what more do you want
    • Taste
      91 91
      Full, dark and light attack with banana, honey, wood, distillery character (I would guess an old Glen Grant or Glenfarclas). 31 years is good.
      Fruity start that becomes more and more voluminous. Never too much wood.

      Best whisky tonight.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Full, creamy mouthfeel and the finish is not super intense, but still on the tongue after a few minutes.
      If someone knocks and asks what can it be. Then so.

  8. LDB scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A real hit - the sun comes into the glass!
    And all summer platitudes must come,
    to do justice to this great malt :)
    • Nose
      91 91
      Melons, all sorts, peach, pineapple, sweet lemon juice - ah, vitamins for the nose! In addition, sunlit pine trees (rather rare in autumn) in a blooming heathland and a small detour to an artist's studio, where fresh canvases have just been dampened.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Spicy honey with lemon sorbet, fruit paste and sweets from the mentioned fruit varieties, very intense and dense on the palate, Means: complex, anything but foreseeable matter, which can even be increased by one (1!) drop of H2O. With chewing you later bite your way through a blooming lemon grove (another summer cliché!) and enjoy the azure sky on the Greek island xy ;)
    • Finish
      89 89
      In the aftermath, it goes away rather quickly, he still smiles from afar, mildly with age. Goodbye Summer!

  10. ThorstenH scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      90 90
      Fruit cake with lemon glaze. A slight sharpness. With time in the glass, the lemon recedes and the fruitcake notes are fully present.
      2. Dram and the cake turned into squeaky sweet gummy bears. Not the normal Haribo, but the really pungently sweet ones. That's awesome.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Pleasant acidity, fresh, maybe lime. But there is also a sweetness, which makes it interesting.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium finish. The sweetness stays.
