    Banff 21y 1982, 57.1%, Rare Malts 2004
    Very fresh, clean nose that takes some time to fully expose itself. I also had that with the 1971 of the Dead Whisky Society, although this nose does not reach that level now. The beginning is a bit boring with citrus, cereals (oatmeal) and wood, but then more fruit comes through: juicy pears, pineapple and melon (cavaillon or charentais). Grass too and silvered up. Not very complex, but tasty. On the tongue he shows himself rough, sharp and very alcoholic. Bitter. That bitterness is not so bad at first, but towards the end the bitter starts to dominate. Cereals, vanilla, white grapefruit, nutmeg, lots of wood - too much in the long run - and especially in the end nuts and raw chestnuts. Pfff, no, this is no longer pleasant. The nose was better, remarkable. Bitter finish with some citrus and herbs but especially a lot of wood and nuts. Difficult to score. On the basis of the nose he had earned 85, at least. The final verdict is a bit skinnier. 80/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/09/21/banff-21y-1982-rare-malts/

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    I love my own whiskys, love alternating games in the mouth, like pear and exotic in combination with oldschool notes such as the light Heiderauch and malt. That's why the high points compared to the average.
    • Nose
      Very peculiar but exciting, beautiful kiwi like I never had with whisky, nice polished oak, old pineapple cubes, oldschool removed pike, lemons, some pear, anise and vllt. also something floral
    • Taste
      Here again quite fruity, the kiwi and pineapple, changeable in the mouth, sometimes tropical acidity, then great fresh malt, hard to define, lemon peel, light herbal honey, crystal sugar and a bit waxy, grapefruit, pear
    • Finish
      The malt and the wax continue, citrus notes, pear with shell and malt, slightly tingling, medium to long

  7. dRambo scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    für mich war der zu lange im Fass - die Bitterstoffe sind gerade noch im leckeren Bereich - irgendwie stören sie aber schon die Balance -auch nur Whisky
    • Nose
      fine old sweet oak note, machine oil,
    • Taste
      Salt, massive oak, tobacco, oil, fine old fumigated smoke
    • Finish
      sehr lang mit Wachs, Blüten, Zitrus und Tanninen - klebt er schier ewig auf der Zunge - prickelt 

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Good nose for those who wait, but on the palate and mostly in the finish, the wood is simply tool oud. Thanks, Chris!
    • Nose
      The nose is very clean and does not offer up a lot of aroma at first… I get some citrus, paper and oatmeal. Only after some patience that is joined by some honey, vanilla and juicy pears. Give it another extra five minutes to settle and it will reward you with some pineapple, melon and silver polish. Pleasant enough if you are patient.
    • Taste
      It starts quite fruity and feisty on the palate, but quickly the wood starts to dominate, turning it quite bitter. While it remains sweet (vanilla, crystal sugar) and somewhat waxy, a sour note appears as if from grapefruit and quinine. But it is mostly the tannins that ruin the fun here. It becomes quite sharp and water does not save it.
    • Finish
      That bitterness becomes quite big in the medium finish, which is not a good thing in my book.

  10. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2006]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 2650 that I bought for 67 Euro in May, 2006.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state the typical fat and oily "Rare Malts" profile with some nutty and spicy (vanilla) flavours.  Water is certainly advised to open up this otherwise somewhat shy and punchy dram.
