  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The sherry mixes with chocolate, treacle tart, mango and peach skin.
    The palate is really spicy at first, for only 40% this is punching above it's weight, strangely the mouthfeel is a little thin, but packed with flavour.
    As you go on the sweet spice increases and there is some blackberry, hints of full bodied red wine.
    It just keeps improving, great stuff, the finish is really long for a 40% whisky.
    Worth looking out for at auction for sure

    Blended/Vatted Malts, 13 tasted, H2H, for what it is worth the 1979 Berry's although listed as a blend on the label, I am not alone in thinking it is actually really a vatted malt.

    Nose: Much fruity and flowery-fresh in the nose, with orange liqueur (Blue Curacao), heather, some wild honey and a fine Heunote provided.
    Taste: Somewhat voluminous and immediately spicy. An interplay of shallow sweetness and slightly tart spiciness begins, in which the honey aromas become more and more prevalent. Lemon and lime juice as well as salty nut liqueur are present towards the end.
    Finish: Medium length - getting drier with fine nuances of nut, citrus and preserved herbs. The last part gets sweeter again with some honey, and slight gum notes come on.
    86 points (nose: 85 / taste: 86 / finish: 86)
