6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.02 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    One of the standard bottelings of a decade ago.
    • Nose
      Floral and grassy notes. Citrus fruit. Juniper berries. Some menthol as well.
    • Taste
      Light and clean. Malty sweetness. A litte spice fades away quickly. Grapes and some minerals.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Sweet.

  2. The Macallan scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    A fine malt with some good aspects when not reduced to much. Goes well with an nice piece of "old Dutch" cheeses.
    • Nose
      Briny as a seabreeze, malty, winey(sherry), sweety(bubblegum), grassy/hay like with light phenolic influences (reduced: cereal, abricot, citrus and woody)
    • Taste
      Salty, sherry like, slightly bitter, peaty and spicy like some "old Dutch" cheese (reduced: soft "wash" like, watery, flavor disappears after reduction).
    • Finish
      Quite long, powerfull, very spicy and fades gentle away.

  3. MaltMartyr did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Preiss imported a 750ml to the U.S.

  4. Willie JJ scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A wonderful, complex dram that is now sadly missed.
    • Nose
      Cinammon, cloves, lemon, spicy fruit loaf, mixed spice, cough syrup, fresh paint.
    • Taste
      barley water, cloves, lemon, more paint, very spicy and salty.
    • Finish
      Long drying spice breaking in waves that drench the palate in salt spray.

  5. Feusi scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Slowly but surely, this bottling is scarce and expensive. A very good Campbeltown single malt, equal in its complexity with Spring Bank. Proposal to buy a bottle before it no longer exists.

  6. Melvin scored this whisky 75 points Expert Junior

    Nose : pleasant smell of honey, marzipan and some fruit
    Taste : Light to medium body, round nose: pleasant smell of honey, marzipan and some fruit
    Finish : Medium long - clean and clear, salt
