  1. Feusi did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Sherry and dried fruits, spices and orange chocolate in the nose. Freh citrus and the sweetness of toffee together on the palate. A rather loger finish brings that dram to the "coronation".

  2. mmaclean scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This is a classic and actually one of these bottles I was up in San Clemente visiting the local store and found this bottle marked 129$ and figured I would offer an even 100$ and the seller took it. You never know the power of the dollar can have under the right circumstances.

    What I have noticed over time is that this becomes more of a favorite. It has subtle notes of citrus and wonderful notes of cinnamon with some nutmeg. Sometimes a bit of fresh cut grass in the nose. It has a carmel like feel on the tongue and after rolling it aroung a bit, then the tingleling sinsations start to grow in intensity. Very enjoyable to drink on any occasion!

    Nice to enjoy after some Lemon merang pie.
    • Nose
      Intense rich aroma, with hints of vanilla and passion fruit.
    • Taste
      Soft, rich and spicy with hints of oranges and peat.
    • Finish
      Lingering with hints of wood smoke.

    This would make a wonderful gift this year to someone who appreciates fine scotch.
