  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    This has a great nose and the palate/finish are nice but I cannot get that dry/woody note out of my taste buds and on final reflection I think it is now a metallic note perhaps,
    Still worth 90 points all round.

      There is plenty of OBE on show here, this is one of those old Cadenhead dumpy offerings that you need to take your time with, and why I focussed on them quite some time ago.

      Closed at first but there is a basket of stewed white fruits mixed with honey, a little menthol and a little peat.
      After a few minute a hint of coca cola cube sweets that I used to love when I was a kid :)

      A little polish, a little camphor perhaps, and a slight briny note
      Great nose
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very chewy, hints of peat but a massive wave of fruit is there from the off, pineapple, mango that sort of thing but there is a dry note that detracts a little, a woody not definitely from the cask rather than anything else.
      Honeycomb, sherbet fizz and mixed in with the fruit a spice note emerges.
      the wood/dryness knocks it down a few points but the spice wave increases by the sip and restores the balance and keeps the dryness in check
    • Finish
      88 88
      This has a long , fruity spicy finish but again that dry/bitter notes invades the palate but it comes and goes.
