  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    My favorite from the 30s & 40s tasting, has retained the most aroma and depth, beautiful tropical notes, reminiscent of a 70s Speyside region tamed but still full of life ...
    • Nose
      Aromatic to the ceiling, marzipan, white chocolate, hazelnut, pecan, toffee and honey, banana, amarena cherry, buttery-sweet, some white tea, rose water, sweet, slightly mushy pear, this pear is becoming more intense with time, mango
    • Taste
      The sweet pear spreads wonderfully, very aromatic and full again, tropical honey, papaya, orange blossom water, rose water, lavender, green and white tea, fennel, eucalyptus, mandarin and honeydew melon, white chocolate and marzipan
    • Finish
      Slightly drier, sweet and dry, still papaya, marzipan, fine oak and sweet malt, long to very long
