  1. tribe scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Everything is correct there. When it was freshly opened, it was almost too peppery for me for a short time, but went away after a few weeks. He was malted to a super, finest finish. Somehow it doesn't exist anymore, unless the wallet is big enough...
    • Nose
      91 91
      Fruits in white and yellow paired with white oak and some menthol. These are other components that will openly vary over time.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Tropical, like lychee and apricots, white fruits with ginger and white pepper. The wood is there, but despite the 34 years, it is not bitter or disturbing, but accompanies everything to a super compote. There is still citrus and fine spices. Includes vanilla and honey. Super great part like all old duncan taylors tried so far.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Is super finish is sweet and fruity and only tender with pepper. Unfortunately just a bit short. The taste could linger in your mouth for hours, but unfortunately it doesn't. That's why you're forced to take the next sip, which isn't good for the amount of decay in the bottle... But because of such MALTS you drink whisky
