  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A challenging but very enjoyable whisky. Nose is hard to get due to the abv, as often is the case with Rare Malts. Massive flavours and development, needs time for sure to unfold. Even with the intensity, it’s a style that doesn’t get released anymore.
    • Nose
      Subdued (due to heat) spicy, prickly, pretty classic Rare Malt nose. Very big dram. Rose water, orange oil, chili’s in honey.
    • Taste
      Huge, orange oil, waxy, and a bucket of honey. Very nice.
    • Finish
      Spicy, full fat, oily, chili honey, chili orange.

    The Rare Malts series consists of masterpieces and this is one of them.
    Nose. Apples and Apple jam, honey, Linden, fresh fruit.
    Taste. Sweet fruit, a little glue and rubber, book dust.
    Aftertaste. Sweet, long-lasting, with a slight hint of bitter tones.

    N: Fruity - white grapes, melon and ripe pear, spices, grassy and almond paste. Very mature and complex whisky.
    T: Mature and dusty notes. Pine resin, marshmellows, popcorn, tobacco leaves, apple and spices - pepper.
    F: Medium drying with pastry, honey, malty and again peppery.

    The nose at the beginning is sweet-lacquer, then softer, but the taste is aggressive, generally not bad, tasty ... but it probably requires a long sediment ...

  9. 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.
