  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Green wood, unripe fruits, a little dry. It gives a lot of relief, but rounds up is smooth with the opening, even if you lose in expressiveness.
    • Taste
      This is expressiveness! Very fluffy! He is finally his age. Woody, fruity (where I distinguish apricot), the spices are there, it's pretty!
    • Finish
      What aroma development during the first sip! Everything going up on the volume! In the following sips, there is a nice fruity but on restraint, with a crackling of spices on the other side of the spectrum.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 3/5
      Mouth and final 4/5

      Whisky n ° 1798

    little closed nose, in the beginning bit of glue but that quickly pulled away. honey, heather. Mouth is quite malty, aftertaste too, but reasonably long but not very complex. Does not taste like a very old whisky.

  5. Falnor scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Delicate
    one, give it time
    • Nose
      A little
      timid and soft. Sweet and honeyed barley. Apricots, apple and dried fruit. Also
      a little bit floral.
    • Taste
      Creamy and elegant.
      Citrus fruits, like red oranges and grapefruit. Towards the finish it becomes
      more citrus/ tropical fruity tea.
    • Finish
      Still
      sweet, more greenish bananas and tea. Dried leaves.

  6. peathead scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It reminds me a bit of Amrut (ginger + exotic fruit).  If the finish would be longer I'd give it a higher score.
    • Nose
      The nose is rather closed at first.  It needs some time and a little bit of water to open up.  Then the hay, wet stone, minerals and some slight fruitiness emerge.
    • Taste
      Ginger, exotic fruit, a bit of hay and less minerals than in the nose.
    • Finish
      Rather short unfortunately with more ginger and a bit of fruit.

    • Nose
      Clean. Sweetish. Pronounced barley sugar. Some sherry.
    • Taste
      Medium-bodied. Very smooth indeed. Clean, malty, nutty.
    • Finish
      Nice balance of fragrant smoky dryness.
