  1. hedonisto scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    glad to have found one of those in 2016 been bottled in 2011 for the original retail price of 243,- because this is top notch for me , reminds me of one of my personal "holy grails" 1967-1999 glen grant of douglas laing old malt cask series which was 32 years old as well
    • Nose
      old school sherry, real old and high level sherry cask, maritim notes hints of salt, rich deep you feeling IT instantly lots of wood
    • Taste
      starts over mellow and increasses in power ongoing to the midlle til end of tounge sweetness sherry woods again, hints of cinammon, wounderful, impressive,yet gentle beeswax , islay character is coming to very little rest of maritime notes as salt, peat also just hints
    • Finish
      very long, fruity again, wood, must have been a bomb of a sherry cask
