  1. boborban scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    sergeA legendary and rare bottling that was presented in a dazzling brass ‘spirit
    safe’. As the excellent people at Royal Mile Whiskies have written, ‘Not quite
    sure what the middle cut refers to... hopefully the feints and foreshots are
    never bottled!’ I’d bet it was more referring to the packaging ;-). Colour:
    gold. Nose: it’s quite amazing how dry and austere this one is, whilst we’d have
    expected something, well, ‘luscious’. Rather grainy and sort of vegetal, with
    obvious notes of fresh oak and grass. Water may be of help here. With water:
    bingo, it does get wider and ‘jammier’ but never quite as aromatic as some more
    recent bottlings. Yet, there’s quite some marzipan, light honey, caramel, cooked
    apricots and just tiny whiffs of coriander. Mouth (neat): it’s got nothing to do
    with the nose when neat. Much more expressive, jammy, fruity and wonderfully
    spicy. Say some peppered plum jam plus quite some quince jelly and just a little
    orange blossom water. Baklavas. With water: not much change, maybe a little more
    spices. White pepper. Finish: medium long, with more ginger and quite some white
    pepper. Crystallised oranges, Smyrna raisins. Comments: this fancy bottling was
    excellent, but the owners have issued many greater old whiskies since 1997 in my
    opinion (well, not only mine). The nose was a little disappointing.

     

  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very good whisky, to enjoy slowly and long before a good movie, quiet. But his lack of complexity and thrills provided does not make him, in my eyes, reach a 90.
    • Nose
      The sherry and the wood are present, without crushing the scents of green fruits (apple, pear) cooked. The nose fades a little too much after about fifteen minutes.
    • Taste
      Very delicate on cooked fruits. The age of this whisky is felt in a calm wisdom, flavors. A cruise.
    • Finish
      Average. The wood comes back to the foreground and dries the tip of the tongue a little. The fruits are always present.
