  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2007]  I had this dram during a "30+ years" tasting at 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 it 90. 
    My notes state a very subtle bourbon profile on lots of different fruits.

    Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan

    Colour: August barley fieldBody: The structure, appearance and feel of this spirit are absolutely voluptuos.Nose: Curtains of many aromas sidle slowly over the sense organs. First it is buttered mints, yellow peaches, juicy tropical fruits and golden syrup. Then the rhythm changes, sweet oak sensations excite and become the main attraction, but only for a short time as light saffron and dried orange aromas sensuously drift over like high clouds on a summer´s day.Palate: A taste testimonial to this outstanding distillery. The depth of spirit is unfathomable. Layer upon layer of pure malt magic. Very few spirits will ever emulate this masterpiece - and all from American oak ! Who would have believed it ? The guys who made this should have been sainted.Finish: Single malt hangliding. It lifts you higher the deeper in the glass you descend.   Perfection.
