  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [January, 2017]    ...continuing my CGBP-project (The "Cadenhead Green Bottle Period" lasted from late-1990 until mid-1998 and is characterised by its small size white labels).  I bought this bottle for 111 Euro in January, 2008.

    This is a strange beast, not sure what I should write about it.  There are quite a lot of off-notes both in the nose and on the palate that usually drive the score down.  On the other side, this is a very interesting and powerful malt, with every sip you feel the muscles and bones of this dram.  So it is some kind of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde, I would love to read other people's opinion on that...  In the meantime I go for an "interesting" rating.

    By the way, it really improves with a fair share of water.  Then it gets very smooth and charming, without these off-notes it would be a 90+ score....
