  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Wonderfully aromatic, complex and fragrant. Many bright overripe fruits, especially maga, pineapple, banana and then also spicy woods like cinnamon and sandalwood, followed by vanilla and tonka bean. Later also cedar, lemon, white currant, gooseberry, salt and a hint of peat. Becomes more nutty but also floral with notes of sage, buttercups and aromatic hay. Top!
    • Taste
      Complex and fine spicy. Overripe fruits, salt, some more smoke, metallic accents, cedar wood, tobacco, nuts, oily accents, apple peel, wet newspaper, soil and a hint of peat.
    • Finish
      Very long, complex, spicy with citrus zest, metallic accents and soft smoke.

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=257 Color: corn yellow
    Nose: honey, caramel, straw, smoky malt. In addition, slightly watered lemon and old cardboard box - that's it.
    Taste: Soft-round-thin, delicately perfumed and with little spiciness. Again watered, slightly woody fruit notes. Tart herbs and vanilla with soapcake lengths.
    Finish: Rather short - when the slightly unsightly notes fade away, sweet honey and sweetened fruit notes are left behind. Lined with leather and thread tea aromas.
    83 points (nose: 84 / taste: 80 / finish: 84)

    This is the oldest 10 year I have had and I was expecting more, I think the newer 10 year is better than this original.

    Still a pleasant easy drinking malt.
    • Nose
      Honey with very hint menthol, pear and restrained lemon with a few cleaning fluid notes but its ok.
    • Taste
      `It is a little thin` was my first impression  but then it seemed to firm up on the palate. There is some lemon drizzle cake in there and hints of honey and vanilla and at the back of the palate just a little apple bitterness.
    • Finish
      Quite short and fading

    Slightly different than the current Original, and a slight step up as well. 
    • Nose
      Honey, spice, wood, citrus, and lemon spray. 
    • Taste
      Smooth and oily. Runny honey, muted citrus, and spice. 
    • Finish
      Smooth and warming, with a reading sweetness, sourness, and spice.
