  3. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    For me the complexities have been diminished rather than enhanced. It's a good drink and may be more acceptable for newbies but since when did all whisky have to be acceptable to everyone?
    • Nose
      Woodier, more firm and slightly vinous. The black fruits are now dried, less definition on the nose.
    • Taste
      The smoke seems to have been shunted forward. A good mix of rich spirit, dried fruit.
    • Finish
      Thick and only lightly smoked. Generous and sweet.

    Some prices are from another world.
    Like this one here: Whisky Exchange offers it for 950GBP.
    On Whisky auction the auction prices have been between 335 and 655 € (537GBP) in the time period from 07/2013 to 12/2013. Bottle size 70cl and 100cl.

    755€ in the April Auction 2015

  6. The Macallan did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A very pleasant whisky, remember that the first ones came out and that we all where thrilled to get them and taste them back in the late nineties.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke and marmoleum (Forbo manufacturers).
    • Taste
      Peaty, salty, gentle and light pepperish
    • Finish
      Long with some sweet smokey/peppery layers in the back.
