  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted in the evening. Very pretty ! Very round, on cooked fruits, pulling towards the exotic, on the nose.
    Mouth, round, spicy, fragrant, rather exuberant.
    It may be missing a few degrees for me to climb the curtain.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Whisky n ° 2049

    Quite a leafy, woody nose this one with a load of oatmeal biscuit perhaps some vanilla in the mix too.
    This one is showing its age, not with the wood of the cask but the way the fruit is syrupy and well stewed , nice balance, slightly drying.
    It gets a little sweet and a huge spice blast mixed with the fruit, nectarine juice, mango a touch of lime, its a fruit salad, great.
    This has a good medium finish remaining sweet and fruity until the end.
    A good whisky.

  9. tomy63 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    gold color, superb nose, fruity bomb, banana, mango, tangerine, passion fruit ... with a little honey, wax and in the bottom notes bourbon cask, vanilla and coconut. Mouth quite lively and tart, full of fruits on the attack, not too dry or woody. End of the mouth and especially final a little less interesting, although the length is there, with more vanilla bourbon and coconut

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/strathmill-1974-zwei-alte-speysider-head-to-head-36703/ Color: gold
    Nose: Slightly green, fruity nose with aromas of vanilla, wild honey, hay, cream, butter and wax. Accompanied by floral notes and the impression of the moment after a fresh May rain.
    Taste: Round and balanced, but again watery-thin - rather unspectacular aroma development. In summary: Sweet orange with slightly spicy-salty notes plays with fine honey-sweet vanilla.
    Finish: Again a maximum of medium length with the notes of the taste, which dry out in the back.
    Remark: Except for the nose also rather unspectacular in the glass!
    85 points (nose: 88 / taste: 85 / finish: 83)
