  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This whisky really needs some time, especially in the nose things get better and fuller in time, more intense. Mostly sweet, with some light fruity elements, surprisingly full and strong for such a low Abv.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fruity, citrus, lemon, also a little earthy or mossy. Also some sweetness, vanilla. I get this grainy associations now, at times this could very well be a single grain. Full nose, no pickering alcohol, later on perhaps a little. Orange and pineapple come in.
    • Taste

      A little pickering, sweet, vanilla, fruity too. A little of peach. Vanilla cake, a bit buttery, later on it gets stronger, with some earthy notes.
    • Finish

      Still a little pickering, sweet, vanilla, grainy again. Not very long, some wood, with again more earthy notes at the end.

    • Nose
      A fresh and light start that will turn more malty. It doesn't seem to hinder from the fact that it was so long bottled and now opened.
      Chocolate chip cookies and a breakfast of cereals with some fruit on the side.
    • Taste
      A very malty and barley driven whisky. Very easy to drink and perhaps not all that complicated, but still rich in the flavour it has. Caramels, cake and butter.
      Fresh oven baked whitebread with abricotjam or marmalade on top of it.
    • Finish
      Still lots of grain. Woodspices and also some coffee with a good deal of sugar in it.

  9. hs305 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2002]  I had this dram during an "old bottles" tasting in Bonn. 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 this
    82,5. 
    My notes state a pale golden colour and a very light texture.  The nose is sweet (vanilla) and very fruity
    (apples, pears).  The mouthfeel is
    gentle.  The taste is soft and sweet with some chocolate and caramel flavours.  The nice fruity
    aromas of the nose are still there.  The finish is rather short but intense and smooth.
