  1. ThS scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Coherent from beginning to end, but complex too, and of a great class. Excellent!
    • Nose
      Very nice nose, very present, filled with fruit: it is at the same time in the orchard (apples, pears, ripe apricots) and in the islands (passion fruit, pineapple, mango). A base of honey, leather, light peat. All this is both melted and detailed. Small twists of lemon peel here and there. It is well cleared, enveloping, nuanced and alcohol is perfectly integrated despite the 58%.
    • Taste
      Soft attack, fruity and peaty. Beeswax, weathered wood, some leather and salt. It gradually melts in the mouth, more and more on the beeswax, the old wood, the liquor cabinet. Fantastic.
    • Finish
      Beautiful and long finish, completely melted, enveloping, sensual, with a nice fruity lingering on old leather, peat, green olive in brine (the fino expresses itself here), patinated wood and wax bee always.

  9. Willie JJ scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A fabulously rich experience. Lovely whisky
    • Nose
      Treacle toffee and prunes. Malt concentrate from a home brew kit. Butter tablet cooking in the pan. Toffee toffee toffee. Yum!
    • Taste
      No change here, the toffee theme continues and it's just delicious.
    • Finish
      It's just so constant. There's no great variety in this dram, but who needs variety when it's this good. The spices come through eventually but you would never take this to be thirty six years old.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    What a wonderful whisky!
    • Nose
      An intense fruitiness with apricot, goji berry and plum. Crème brûlée, toffee, yellow raisin, leather and hazelnut. Or to summarise it in one word: WOW!
    • Taste
      Goji berry, apricot, leather, bramble, roasted malt, spice, plum, toffee, raisin and candied orange. Over time also some peat.
    • Finish
      Toffee, goji berry, apricot, peat, hazelnut, chocolate, leather and vanilla.
