  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful. An unparalleled balance.
    We would like it to be broken to have a little more power.
    • Nose
      Very pretty nose wrapped in rancio and camphor. Apricot, peach, papaya. White pepper.
      Quince, clove.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is soft, light and watery. We have apricot, peach, wood and spices. Cinnamon, ginger, pepper. White flower.
    • Finish
      Finale on peach, apricot, camphor. It looks nice.

    Really fruity, rather light and easy drinkable, still some spices but indeed, probably they should not have lowered the abv to the min 40% and it would have got an even higher rating - overall still pretty good
    • Nose
      91 91
      Full of peach, banana, vanilla, quince, yellow apple, little honey, spices, little oak wood, pepper, hints of caramel and candy, probably also some exotic fruits, pineapple and such - really good
    • Taste

    Nice old style glen grant a bit of sherry influence, citrus fruits, some dirtiness

  4. NorthernSpirit scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Tried on a fair, without the peace he deserved.
    • Nose
      Strong herbal notes dominate the entry. Behind it, dense, dry sherry unfolds. The density and complexity, especially in view of the alcohol strength is impressive, in the nose could be lost forever.
    • Taste
      Age is present from the beginning, musty notes and intense influence of old sherries. As you would taste any of the 46 years. These are joined by subtle chocolate tones.
      More alcohol and he would be a firework. And still: Wow.
    • Finish
      Sounds for a while.
