  2. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Definitely the price and worth it for this 29 year old whisky.
    • Nose
      initially slightly closed, but after some rolling or a few drops of water, this whisky is completely loose. Classic Caol Ila, with peat, oil, toffee and smoked meat.
    • Taste
      A sweet undertone. Slightly medicinal, linseed, wet grass.With some water come biscuits and then smoked meat and peat.
    • Finish
      Lan, real Islay. Smoked sweetness and light peat smoke.
