  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Subtle sherry flavors, otherwise rather strawy in the nose. In the aroma first peppery, then sweet malty. Something paraphrases around the corner.

    [November, 2012]  I had this dram during a Lion's club tasting near Würzburg.

    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 "Okay but nothing to remember by tomorrow".
