  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [August, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 82 Euro in April, 2014.

    [October, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 86 Euro in September, 2015.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 it 90 both times.  My notes state a delicate and balanced dram that is multi-layered and easy drinkable...

  4. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Serge from Whiskyfun says:

    Chivas The Century of Malts (40%, OB) This one is a blend of 100 different malts that was launched quite a while ago, so it’s technically a Pure Malt – sorry, a Blended Malt Whisky. I'm curious because they are now selling the blended Chivas 18 yo at a higher price, which could be bad news for the 'Century' regarding their confidence in its quality. Colour: pure gold. Nose: fresh and rather clean, but curiously simple and undemanding. Vague hints of sherry and freshly cut apple, together with a bit of caramel and fresh cream, but not much else. Was it really worth the trouble – and the fuss? Mouth: rather bold attack but again, really un-definite. Notes of sherry and wood, together with some toffee and dried orange… That’s all. Of course it’s drinkable, but it isn’t any better than a simple Single Malt like, say Tamnavulin or Tamdhu. A perfect example of a 70 points malt.

    D*mn good stuff!!!

    Really worth to get your hands on a bottle if you can find one (or a miniature)

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The complexity can hardly be increased. OK, maybe I let affect me out of the 100 malts, is indeed truly a legendary bottling. If you have the opportunity, you should absolutely have to pour a dram.
