  1. Calmar scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    A very interesting mix of mineral-industrial and sweet-creamy beginnings, with a feeling of not too great age, very good depth and complexity of the composition, excellent balance and tremendous drinkability, mass of halftones, good development.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, old wood, varnish, dry herbs, light sulphurous notes, sweet creamy shades, burnt leaves, herbarium, milk chocolate, cappuccino, a little bit sharp mineral tones, shortbread cookies, baked milk.
    • Taste
      Soft, intense, mineral-industrial notes, ash, smoky peaty shades, sweet creamy notes, cappuccino, chocolate, sour metallic motifs.
    • Finish
      A very interesting mix of mineral-industrial and sweet-creamy beginnings, with a feeling of not too great age, very good depth and complexity of the composition, excellent balance and tremendous drinkability, mass of halftones, good development.

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=274 Color: rust red / chestnut Nose: soft-warm-harmonious! Caramel and toffee, honey and sweet orange marmalade with soft leather notes and slightly watered lime. This softened cardboard box and always hints of tropical fruits. Taste: Soft-fruity and with a lot of caramel. A basket full of tropical fruits, vanilla finest honey, some wood, nutmeg, cinnamon and dried herbs. A fantastic interaction on the tongue! Finish: Medium length - the ingenious variety of taste ends without spikes. Orange Fruit Leather Herb Caramel Honey - just delicious! 92 points (Nose: 92 / taste: 93 / finish: 92)

  3. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2012]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

    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 90.  I took no detailed notes.

  5. Master Quill scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    A bottle like this was issued lots of years, and the quality varies. Score is for a bottle from 1985 imported by pinerolo (Bottle Code SC999), but i`ve seen bottles looking like this from around 1990, around 1995 and even later. All these later bottled are lighter in colour.
