  2. Mannix65 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Venerable grain - unfortunately a bit one-dimensional
    • Nose
      89 89
      At first there is an artificial lacquer note, but it disappears quickly, then chocolate and coconut dominate (isn't there a bar ?!),
    • Taste
      88 88
      Coconut macaroons and malty sugar sweetness
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sweet with a bitter finish

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very beautiful grain, smooth and strong, without being dusty at all seen it's age. Really enjoyable.

      Very sweet and full, even from the beginning. Left this grain breathing for more than an hour, but actually there was no evolution, same aroma's already from the start.
      Vanilla, custard, very rich 'nose'. Some orange and peach, and sweet cake.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very smooth, but full body and taste. Sweet, vanilla, and again some orange and peach.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still very smooth and full, only a little tingling. Lot's of soft sweetness, vanilla, honey. Pretty long.
