  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    - a great Dest. Ed. the Classic Malts of Scotland series
    - for the then price of around 45 € a top whisky
    today's prices only interesting for collectors (the
    Whisky is not worth the price)
    • Nose
      very fruity, old grapes, clear port notes, round and soft
    • Taste
      very soft fruity start, plum, dark fruits, wine-like aromas, extremely mild and very tasty
    • Finish
      short, soft, fruity finish;
      medium-long fruity aftertaste, becoming dry

    Thanks to whiskyU for the sample. The nose clearly the best thing about this whisky. I would not need a whole bottle.

    Fruity and warm nose. Less lightweight than the 12y0 OB but just as complex.
    Taste sweet and intense, quite fresh, woody and a little dry.
    Final complex, warm and long ending on a slightly smoky note.
