  4. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Sept 2016 update: After being open for a year or so this one developed a cheesy, sickly note. Not pleasant. Haven't adjusted score though.
    • Nose
      Limestone, pears. A little yeasty. Ale, husky.
    • Taste
      A little sherry. Malty. Apples. Rhubarb and custard sweets. Some pepper and chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Sweetness continues.

  5. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Comparing this one to the 1995 GM (24649) and 1998 CM (41315), this one beats them both. It doesn't score on complexity but on intensity.
    • Nose
      Very sweet with a whole pot of honey. Also vanilla, citrus, floral notes, beeswax, straw, banana, currants, malt and subtle spice.
    • Taste
      Again mainly honey. Also figs, currants, vanilla, almond, citrus and a light oaky spiciness.
    • Finish
      Honey, vanilla sugar, currants and cereals.

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sweet and fruity with earthy floral notes. Citrus with chocolate comes together with vanilla and honey. A peppermint feeling, like a toothpaste stays on the palate. Maybe a good dram for the morning?

  7. Malt Hans scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Malty and spicy aroma, floral honey, raisins, figs, cardamom, meat pie, dry hay and vanilla. Floral honey sweetness, pepper, mint, orange marmalade and almonds. Medium long, malty and spicy end.
