  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, a cream cake with vanilla, discreet yellow-orange fruits, barrel barrel!
    • Nose
      vanilla, sweet !!
      cake coming out of the glass, not normal, a little meringue too.
      it's very floral and a little on the old dried varnish!
    • Finish
      the basis of a great whisky in my opinion.

  3. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A dash of water is perfect. Skip the pudding and enjoy your dram with a shortbread.
    • Nose
      Rich biscuity notes. Honey and toffee. Shoe polish. Greengage. Vanilla ice cream. A distant touch of wet cellar. Water releases lighter floral notes.
    • Taste
      Lovely velvet feel. Rich, oily. Complex. Oak and age give a bold structure to the palate.
    • Finish
      Spicy, dry. Slightly bitter. Like gentian root.

  4. Willie JJ scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Presumably what naddura would be like at 28yo. Brilliant!
    • Nose
      The classic Glenlivet is there, but its overwhelmed by the huge vanilla. Crystalised fruit everywhere. Fabulously sweet.
    • Taste
      Plenty of fruit sweeties. I'm almost crunching on the sugar. This is amazing.
    • Finish
      Drying at full strength, but a spot of water makes it lovely.
