  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Serge from Whiskyfun says:Rare Ayrshire 31 yo 1975/2007 (47.5%, Signatory, cask #554, 165 bottles) This is Ladyburn! Strange that a genuine one – albeit independent - cannot use the name (legal issues with William Grant I guess) whilst a ‘faked’ one – albeit official - can. Colour: pale gold. Nose: quite demonstrative at first sniff but we get mainly oak. Interestingly, it gets then quite hugely lemony, smelling just like limoncello. Add to that a little fresh mint and an interesting sourness from the wood (it’s also a bit yoghurty), then notes of heated wood (like when you drill a whole)… A very clean spirit where the heavy oakiness is quite an asset. Mouth: impressively creamy and thick, just as oaky and lemony as on the nose. Little development, that is, rather the oak growing bolder and bolder but never drying. Finish: medium long, oaky but not excessively tannic, leaving your mouth quite fresh – just like when you had lemon drops? Maybe more legendary than truly palatable but it’s not flawed malt at all – especially the nose is very nice. 78 points.
