  2. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2007]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 1042 that I bought for 125 Euro in July, 2007.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  Unfortunately my notes are lost.

  5. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    With a little water the nose gets sweeter with some toffee notes

    The palate  has a few dry notes now with less fruit but there is absolutely no bitterness.

    Finish seems to be longer now

    This is old school, old style quite reserved in a way but without doubt high quality.
    • Nose
      Candied pineapple chunks, treacle tart, damp wood (not in a bad way), ripe plum, some honey and a trace of orange but also a little wood polish
    • Taste
      Chewy mouthfeel, a little toffee, menthol, fizzy grapefruit, some bitterness comes in but still on grapefruit and a touch of melon.

      Takes time to develop on the palate
    • Finish
      Quite long and restrained with the some more orange notes coming through

    Want proof that whiskies hold up over time? I tasted this 11 years after it was bottled in 1999, and 40 years after it was distilled in 1970, and it still gets a 95! The nose is dry with notes of wood shavings and a hint of pepper. The taste is pungent and spicy with a blast of chili pepper that fades to reveal notes of old leather and almonds. The finish is smooth and lingering with spicy notes and hints of licorice.

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Medium bodied. Perfect as a dram with the sweets for a dinner finale.
    • Nose
      Aromatic, a gallery of aromas. Mature Oloroso cream sherry. Nutty, almond. Whiff of burning heather peat. Sweet citrus.
    • Taste
      Flowery, flaunted in a stylish manner. Sweet notes as from orange blossom honey. Cherry marks its presence in a light way and so do the peat and malt.
    • Finish
      Long and silky. Honey sweetness developing into light peppery notes with hints of cinnamon trotting in a same pace.

  9. The Macallan scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This one was sampled quite some time ago and I examend it on my own pace. You`ll definately need quite some water to reduced it, but when patient enough it reveals it self to you in all its forms. However I must admit that the other DB versions where slightly better so therefor my score will be slightly lower.

    The nose was spicy, dryish oaky aroma`s, some fruity esters with some nice aldehydes. The palate was more of that from a vanilla/toffee like tablet with a sweetness and some fruit (some green and citrus like fruit). The finish was quite long, flavorish with a nice dry oakiness.

  10. aby scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    this one needs time.

    i first tasted this one in Ardshiel Hotel in Campbeltown and did not take enough time (too much to taste) and rated it 82.

    Yesterday evening i took longer to taste it again: it is much better than i expected: 

    nose: dry, grassy, 

    taste: sweet, grass, fruits and honey  rating: 89
