  1. hs305 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2007]  I emptied a bottle that I bought for 89 Euro in June, 2007. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state an astringent mouthfeel and drying profile due to heavy wood influence.  This whisky clearly should have been bottled many years earlier as the otherwise nice flavours and aromas are completely dominated by the tannins.  One to drink "on the rocks" like the Americans do...
