    Outstanding Laddie!!!
    • Nose
      sanft aber intensiv; zartes Holz / Möbelpolitur; Malz; helle Früchte / helle reife Pflaumen und mürber Apfel; exotische Früchte / Papaya; Bienenwachs; alles sehr dicht und komplex
    • Taste
      seidiges Mundgefühl; zunächst sanft und zart dann etwas kräftiger werdend mit milden Gewürzen; leichte Holznote und Süße; Vanillenoten
    • Finish
      Gewürze; Heidehonig; klingt langsam und wärmend ab; es verbleibt eine ganz leichte und kaum wahrnehmbare Bitterkeit vom Holz und ein Hauch exotischer Früchte; lang und wunderbar angenehm

  3. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Taste
      Ester. Calvados. Cider. Some refreshingly fruity acidity.
    • Finish
      Passion fruit. Lovely sweet and aftertaste.

    Original Tasting Notes

    Colour:  Chestnut / burnished copper

    Body:  Super-concentrated with great intensity, impressive and accessible. The lush fruity texture has managed to endure the significant oak aging impressively.

    Nose:  The bouquet is fantastically floral - bluebell, primrose, violets, honeysuckle followed by glorious fruits, honey, melon, apricots and soft ripe peach. The flavours soar from the glass like clouds scudding across Loch Indaal. An outstanding olfactory experience.

    Palate:  The first flavour is of the mature oak, which gives a crisp dryness to the spirit. This is followed by the sweet mellow bourbon notes. Then given a little time, the ripe soft fruits emerge to offer a nicely balanced mouth-feel. It´s a delicious combination of sweet fruit and subtle wood, with sea air adding distinctive honeyed grapefruit freshness. 

    Finish:  Remarkable length, the flavour lingers on endlessly, one minute for every year. An absolute beauty.

  5. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    ‘Complex and brilliant’
    Sometimes at whisky festivals a dream dram gets you a 1cl dribble in your misty, fingerprint laden glass. Other times you get a little lucky and find 4cl of quality malt poured neatly into a sample bottle to take home and pontificate over. In light of this good fortune, lets begin.

    N: Is this acetone? - an amazing likeness! This is a large and abundant, floral and fruity one displaying fruit cocktails abound, tropical fruit juice, peaches, plums, mango, papaya, lilies, pansies, honeysuckle, also some pound cake, clay like maltiness with plaster of Paris, vanilla cream sponge and a delicate yet flowing banana caramel or light banoffee meringue if you will. Its the enormity of the nose that empresses the most, with bold clarity existing within. Balblair 1978 [which i have alongside and isn’t far removed in profile to the Legacy] is utterly over-shadowed in the face of this fruity, floral powerhouse. A perfect nose
    T: Unexpected sour arrival, quickly becoming a dry, fruity [fab bar] malt,…. and then drier, yet more salivating as it opens up before then condensing. Salty now with ginger, cinnamon and other aromatic spices [cardamon, nigella, amchoor powder] and much [bourbon cask] candy overtones. It culminates in a swirling/complex maltiness that’s hard to pin down.
    F: Did i say opens up? It now feels like it shrunk,… and yet it becomes like treacle with grand oak notes, vintage cognac/Grand Marnier and some Irish cream. Condenses further, reduced to a salt malt.
    C: That’s complex and brilliant, I’ve never had a whisky like it. Its not what id call ‘satisfying’ yet it is totally intriguing however.

    Scores an A

  6. Foamy scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    This is exceptional fresh and alive for such an old whisky.
    Anise seeds, very nice wood influence, ripe citrus fruits, metallic, a little dusty
    It lacks a little bit of power, but what the hell … This is the kind of whisky bottles that cheers me up and restores my believe there’s still a lot of good in this world.
    Pity I just emptied the bottle …
