    Nice and sweet, somewhat vintage-inspired malt, which also has a certain spice and bitter orange, intense and hearty, delicious.
    • Nose
      Subtle old bottle flavors, although from 2005, strange, waxy, slightly dusty, peanut, macadamia, light malt, freshly polished oak, freshly oiled leather, bitter orange, dried dates, banana must, sweet yeast dough, brioche, marzipan
    • Taste
      Intensive brioche, light raisins, banana jellies, marzipan, honeydew melon, litchi, pear sauce, pecans, cinnamon, camphor, dates, sweet malt, lots of orange with peel, chamomile tea, meaty and hearty
    • Finish
      Mandarin, almond nut, red apple, camphor, nutmeg, malt, long

    Re taste:-
    This is better than I remember, and more powerful with a nice peat angle but it is the lovely grapefruit/pineapple fruit note that you notice.
    Increase in score from 89 to 92, great stuff, lovely

  5. Allandale did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A midsummer night's dream. Beautiful.
    • Nose
      Waxiness, hint of nut in the background , nots of tropical fruits and honey. Use a drop of water.  More will come.
    • Taste
      Amazing sweetness, The honeyed element continues  this time with more rich tropical fruits even with the water. Complex.
    • Finish
      Long, fruited and elegant. Take your time with this one. No hurry.

  6. Thermidor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very good dram. Just an inch shy of magnificent.
    • Nose
      Slightly greasy, vaguely fruity, with pollen, fresh flowers and corn. Butter that's been on the table a while, A bit of smoke comes out with water. 
    • Taste
      Neat it's a little too nervous for my tastes, but with some water to cut it it settles into its frame better, and what a work of art it is when it does. Waxy, honeyed. Leather bags and faint fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Leaves an oily impression with a little bit of salted liquorice.

    WITH WATER

    Sweeter on the nose with candied fruits and a little honey. The palate is OK but the oak is coming through just a tad too much for my liking.

    Finish - getting a little bitter but still pleasant.

    Its not complicated, what I would call old school single malt, does the job without fuss but not quite great.
    • Nose
      Smoked meats mixed in with pineapple, kiwi and slight gooseberry notes. There is also rich fruit cake and a very slight woodiness.
    • Taste
      Potent, slightly bitter on the tip of the tongue with sweetness at the back of the palate. There is some fruit, green gauge? There is also caramel wafer.
    • Finish
      Long, quite dry and slightly bitter.
