  4. guerriero82 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    by Serge WF : North Port-Brechin 20yo 1979/1999 (61.2%, Rare Malts) Colour: straw. Nose: roughly the same as the 1981 but even harder, grassier and oilier. Almost a curiosity. Maybe water will make it more civilised, let’s see... With water: that didn’t work – at all. It ‘s all grass juice now, with just added hints of bitter apple peelings and big notes of lamp oil. Mouth (neat): a little sweeter than the 1981 this time but other than that it’s quite the same kind of beast. Extremely grassy. With water: hehehe, we got it! Sweeter and rounder but also saltier, with more spices (I get ginger, pepper, cloves, even chilli). Finish: very long, hugely peppery and mustardy... Alright, the best qualifier I could come up with about this one is ‘excessive’. Atishoo! 78 points.

  6. Allandale scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Medium bodied, a brunch dram.
    • Nose
      Newly sawn cedar wood. Resin. Apple cider and acidic lime aroma. Grassy. Some aniseed. Slightly musty and acidic,like over-ripe purple plums.
    • Taste
      Dark,minty chocolate. Candied apricots and pineapple. Maltiness.

      Pronounced woody oakiness.
    • Finish
      Astringent tannic. Dryish. Spirity.

  7. Whisky1978 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very fruity dram!

  8. Feusi scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Dry, very dry and fruity. Some agressive herbal notes torture me. I put some water in and it comes sweeter and smoother but even dry.
