  2. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A pleasant whisky that is light and superficial if you compare it with the Glenlivet 1998 16 Year of The Ultimate. The two years less ripening resulted in a much fruity whisky that is perfectly suited to have in your glass on a balmy summer evening.

  3. I_SPEY scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The colour is red copper and the nose has raisins, fruit, spices, liquorice and apple; the palate is warm, full and fruity, with some soft spicy woodiness and dark chocolate! The finish is long and warming. 

  4. PierreDH scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Monolithic, without much interest. Too much ventilation maybe?
