  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This is better than later versions (Gran Reserva bottle).

    Simple profile but it is a good one.
    • Nose
      Fruit cake, rum & raisin Ice cream, chocolate, and smoked ham
    • Taste
      Like a rum baba cake, sweet and syrupy.

      Chocolate and raising again
    • Finish
      Medium length and very soothing.

    Where most rum finished/matured whiskies and ost glenfiddich don't suit my palate, this one does!
    Though the finish isn't that long, what makes it a little less exiting...

    Hello. I would like to buy an original empty box for this bottle. If anybody could sell it to me. Please let me know. Thank you very much.

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A soft and lightly creamy body.
    • Nose
      Toasty.Biscuity. Petit fours. The aroma when a box of chocolates is opened.
    • Taste
      Vanilla flan. Sweet Cuban coffee.
    • Finish
      Juicy. A hint of dried tropical fruits.

    For a whisky bottled at 40% it has a rather bold and spicy arrival. It needs quite some time in the glass to open up as it is rather closed at the start. The flavours are all well balanced and subtle. The subtle sweet rum tones play very well with the spicy malt aromas. It’s not very complicated in any way but still very nice.
    All in all an interesting and easy to drink whisky.
    • Nose
      A fresh, fruity and rich whisky with aromas of banana, pineapple, boiled sweets, rum, hint of smoke, muesli, vanilla, candied ginger, grass, hay, butter, backed plantain, caramel, toffee, raisins, coconut, floral tones, subtle dried fruits (figs), subtle chocolate, fruit cake, hint of sweet tobacco, peach and subtle creamy oak.
    • Taste
      A rich, spicy and rich whisky with aromas of pepper, rum, malt, apple, pear, muesli, vanilla, ginger, grass, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, tannins, orange, milk chocolate, sweet tobacco, raisins, figs, fresh backed cake, backed banana, melon, floral tones, blood oranges, subtle cedarwood and subtle creamy oak.
    • Finish
      A medium long and slightly drying finish with aromas of ginger, honey, rum, raisins, cane sugar, tannins, apricots, dates and creamy oak.
