  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Fruit syrup, walk in a wooded field of wheat (WTF?) That rises in strength, until becoming almost too spicy at first. With the opening, ripe fruit, oak, chocolate more and more greedy, the fade typical of aged malt made its entry. In the mouth, it is well balanced between the fruitiness and the woody with more sweetness than the nose suggested. A little lack of power, maybe. Final woody, spicy, a little dry.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  7. Achany scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    sweet, syrup, candy, floral, yellow and red ripe fruits, malty, spices, a fine oaky tone as well. full of complexity, the first sip was sweet, then the spices kicked it and when I thought that was it there was a huge wave of floral sweetness again. the finish is quite supberb, the sweet and spicey tones mingle forever. Outstanding dram!

    Nothing wrong with this but also doesn't stand out for me.  It's original price was reasonable for what you get.
    • Nose
      Soft, elegant, very fresh for 35 years.  Vanilla, baked apples, lemon zest.
    • Taste
      Assertive oak, vanilla, orange peel, lemon ginger candies.
    • Finish
      Medium, oranges, pleasant bitterness.

    Elegant

    This limited edition is made from 3 casks of American oak and Spanish sherry casks and bottled at cask strength. The casks yielded only 1.495 bottles. The casks were put to sleep while I was merely a 5 year old kid – many of you had not even seen the light of day yet. Let us give this one a go, eh?

    Wow, what an elegant nose! Subtle on all kinds of honey, baked apples, some sultanas and candied lemon rind, but also a lot of pineapples and wild flowers. A touch of chicory.

    On the palate, the wood is obvious. Some ginger and peper, some cedar wood. Then immeditately sweet apple pie, Seville oranges, cinnamon and a drop of quinine. Walnuts. Wonderfully mouth coating and even a bit smoky (woodsmoke, not peat).

    The medium long finish on bitter oranges and a hint of dark chocolate ends in a surprisingly salty touch at the death.

    A grand AnCnoc that makes me long for a second glass. Enjoy-whisky. Around 300 EUR. Not too bad for a whisky of over three decades.
