  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I had some difficulties with this one at first, but it turned out to be my second pick out of the evening's tasting lineup [Millburn 35yo 1969 (85 pts.), Dufftown-Glenlivet 21yo 1975 (84), Auchroisk 28yo 1974 (86), Linkwood 22yo 1972 (92), this one, and Teaninich 27yo 1972 (88)]. The crowd vote put this in the fourth place after Teaninich, and a shared 2nd place between Linkwood and Auchroisk.
    • Nose
      Dry and malty. Not much happening here. I'm finding it difficult to pick up much detail, and other people in my table are having the same problem. Maybe it should have been opened a week or two before the tasting?
    • Taste
      Ah, so it was just hiding the goodies. The taste is bold and vibrant, the body's solid, and the whole is just a perfect example of a clean spirit-driven whisky. Strongly malty, with a pinch of peat burn, with refill bourbon vanilla notes, some digestives, and faint fruitiness. With water it's even more powerful. Were this architecture, I'd call it brutalist for its angular plainness taken to perfection.
    • Finish
      A long, tangy and burning finish. Monotone but impressive in its fullness.

    • Nose
      Honey, vanilla sugar, candied orange, coconut, peach, litchi and smoke.
    • Taste
      Honey, orange, vanilla, sugared almond, coconut and a little smoke.
    • Finish
      More nutty, chestnut. Still honey and coconut. More smoke.

  5. Menko scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Didn't expect much since I've tried the Ultimate 1997 once, witch I wouln't buy again.

    But to my surprise this is a very nice, fruity and really well balanced whisky! Absolutely worth the money!

  8. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Amazingly good, full-bodied whisky. Worth the price. New German: You, what you want say nothing bad, is good. No crass ashtray like other model.

  10. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Medium bodied, sherried and fruity. A dram to finish a dinner with. On its own with puddings.
    • Nose
      Light,elegant peat and peat reek. Spicy, peppery.

      Pronounced malty. Marked trace of sweet , succulent sherry influence. Vanilla.
    • Taste
      Orange fruity and a f;oral hint of violets. Malty sweetness. Oak woody background harmonic balanced by the sherry.
    • Finish
      Slight tannic dry and astringent with a nutty twist.
