  1. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Body: medium smooth,distinctly oily.
    • Nose
      Restrained,fragrant, pine and leather. Drier.
    • Taste
      Creamier,nuttier. Hint of orange toffee. Still lively, but two or three years in the cask brought more tightly  combined flavours.
    • Finish
      Nutty, late pine. Leafy, peppery dryness.

  3. The Macallan did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Found this one on the shelf of a luxurious estate back in de late nineties! It was a very pleasant experience and a rate of 81 is well deserved in my opinion.
    • Nose
      Very fragrant, floral and yet some nice herbal notes (water brings out more green floral notes and some other estery notes)
    • Taste
      Ver smooth, creamy, with some orange marmalade and caramel (water brings out more citric like flavors and some vanillins but yet very smooth)
    • Finish
      A floral sweet peppery drieness, very pleasant

  4. Feusi did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A Flora and Fauna bottling of Aberfeldy from before they were bought by Bacardi. One of a small number of cask strength expressions in the range.
