  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    a nice pleasant to drink old school standard

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    86 proof, 4/5 quart, USA import.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Terrific old school nose. Aromatic. Herbal oils, substantial peat and soot, beautiful Cuban cigars, leather, and some sweet, citrusy accents.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Beautiful whisky. All the above, with lemon drops and honey and dried herbs. Despite just 43% ABV, this has some oomph and substance behind it.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Not a lengthy finish, with a bit of smoky ash and lemons and grapefruit pith.

  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    My bottle is a US import (86 US PROOF/ 4/5 US QUART). Western Pacific Import/Export Co, Carson, California (CA-1-1980). Likely bottled in the late 70's, containing 60's Bruichladdich distillate. The shoulder tag "AGED 10 YEARS" also looked a bit different from bottle on this page.

  4. nallacam scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Whisky from a good old time. Slightly dusty, but still very good.
    • Nose
      90 90
      The moment, when you notice directly at the first nose, that comes from a bygone time .... which one hurts a bit.
      Wonderfully fruity, oily aromas, a certain maturity, despite an age of "only" 10 years.
      Plenty of ripe yellow stone fruit, sweet vanilla and a hint of "Bruichladdich sharpness".
    • Taste
      88 88
      Consistent in the mouth, the sharpness becomes a little clearer, Blind I would tap on more than 43%.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The Abgnag can not quite keep up. Rather slightly metallic notes (probably the youth) and not as round as expected after the nose.
