  1. maurisso did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted from a mini, but I have a full bottle closed. The time I'll open I will rate it it 100 out of 100. Happy new year.

    This improves with time, in fact it is improving by some margin.

    Nice enough and worth buying at auction but I have seen these go for £150, not sure if that is value but for the right price it is worth a punt.
    • Nose
      That is very different to most blends or malts its like 2 different profiles at once, one is fruity like peach, mango & pineapple and then there is and industrial , metallic like smell that is actually quite nice and lances the sweet notes. I also detect that old , faint, paraffin, chemically smell like garage rags, I really like the nose. 
    • Taste
      The metallic notes are on the palate with some bitter yellow plum, a little peach and some dry wafer notes. After a while the palate thins out a bit and there is some sweet spice which gives it a  little kick
    • Finish
       Medium and there is a lingering bitter/sweet taste that fades slowly

    Always
    thrill to have a wee taste of old bottling like this. Open up with
    fresh and bright citrus lemon, fresh basil and rusty irons. Some musky
    wood and mushrooms aroma lurking, which carry on to the palate, balance
    with fresh citrus. Pleasant and fresh throughout. Short on the exit and
    light on body, but this is a really fresh old dram.

  8. MaltMartin scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Blended malt, distilled in the 1960's. Interesting old-skool flavour.
    • Nose
      Start malty with some cereal mash. Heather. Flowery notes. Yellow apples and melon. Also smoke at the background.
    • Taste
      Quite salty and minty. Lemon. Artichokes. Metalic notes. Green tea. A little peat as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Pepper and nutmeg. Spearmint.

  9. Sjors did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Rumoured to be a blend of, Mortlach, Glenlossie, Aultmore and Glentauchers.
