  1. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A mature Speyside dram. Delicious.
    • Nose
      At first I thought I could feel a hint of smoke. Full and intense in the nose. Ripe, light fruits (pear and apricot), forest honey and milk chocolate. Some damp leather, spices and oak.
    • Taste
      Heavy and oily, sweet and fruity. Right behind it are spices, caramel, vanilla, leather and oak.
    • Finish
      Long with licorice, coffee and some citrus fruit.

  4. The Macallan scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    N: rich, fruity (dried fruit/yellow fruit), mild, matured, estery, floral
    P: light sparkling, sweet, tablet, gentle, slightly bitter, slichtly drying
    F: warming, oak, wood-spices with some fruityness, medium to long
    C: A lovely whisky, not very exciting but very nice as your daily dram. This version was a start of their new wood policy, Ed Dodson former manager at Glen Moray explained me all about it back in 2004.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A good Speysider that shows his age but also has her or other weaknesses. Otherwise easy drinking.
    • Nose
      Fruity, oak, vanilla, spice, leather, but also some hairspray and alcohol.
    • Taste
      Tingling and strong for 40%. In the mouth neat oak, liquorice and a few malty notes.
    • Finish
      Tart, dry, nutty, some sherry and oak. Pretty long, pleasant and somehow fresh.

  6. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very sweet and fruity, such as light raisins scents in combination with vanilla. The taste is somewhat sharp with spicy notes. In the short aftertaste some bitterness, but also some spiciness. All in all a pleasant surprise!

  8. Defeatless scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Mild, not reallly active casks if you ask me. Some raisins, but the spirit influence is quite clear. Quite some freshly cutted wood, marzipan and a hint of citrus. There are also some bourboncask influences in the background. Some vanilla and honey.

    Taste:
    Sweet, slightly bitter. Some raisins, apricot, bitter-orange-marmelade . Little wood. But overall sweet.

    Body:
    Medium

    Finish:
    Medium length. Also a bit tannic. But in general a little wood, some raisins, oranges and hint of vanilla and fudge.

    Price:
    Rather a steal.

    Presentation:
    Nice can!

    Comments:
    It is rather cheap. It is decent whisky, but don't expect a ringer!

    • Taste
      Honey, soft, somewhat thinner, caramel, nuts, raisins
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet, honey, very light peppers
