  1. Jeep51 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    I am divided on this dram. The nose is pleasant, greedy and well balanced. The mouth is well back. [05/2015]
    • Nose
      Elegant, powerful for 40%. In a rather sweet register with honey, red sugar, marmalade, raisins. Some traces of tea
    • Taste
      Powerful attack in the continuity of the nose with really many currants but also a floral / scented side that I do not change at all and that unbalances the whole. More peppery finish and rum-raisin ice cream.
    • Finish
      Long but not very precise. Becomes drying and a little cardboard.

    Beautiful old bourbon barrel whisky. I miss the Lowland-typical citrus notes. Nevertheless a pleasure.
    • Nose
      Sweet, fruity and a touch of old wood. I know that only from much older bottlings, because this whisky is indeed from 1975, but probably only about 15-20 years old. I like that. In addition a trace honey.
    • Taste
      Lots of oak, vanilla, some tart notes. The dusty old wood and the beautiful fruit notes are added, a spurt of glucose.
    • Finish
      dusty oak, a few fruity notes, some honey and the whisky fades out on wood smoke and tart oak.

  3. magic_slim scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Good and easy drinkable. Has a lovely nose.
    • Nose
      Pleasantly sweet, fruity and aromatic at first nosing - smells like dried pears and apples with toffee, a little honey and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Smooth with toffee and lots of unsweetened black tea at first mouthfeel. Oaky aromas, slightly bitter with a little sulphur residue.
    • Finish
      Long with some bitterness, a hint of aniseed and liquorice in the aftertaste.
