  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    1st nose, 2nd mouth, 3rd outlet

    a bit lax, as if he had lost his strength
    soapy in the finish
    the nose is very pleasant
    • Nose
      Chocolate, muff, sherry, raisins, nutmeg, herbs, smooth light frosting

      the nose makes it incredible to drink
    • Taste
      smooth and cool in the beginning
      musty, spicy, then sherry, nut,
      looks diluted, but tasty
    • Finish
      Muff, some sherry, some soap
      getting bitter in the end

    Relatively simple, but very nice old profile; back out unfortunately fast away.

  4. Kalleholzbein scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Had judged him due to the mediocre reviews weaker. Do not think it's bad! Only the 46% and a minimal bitter finish could be interpreted as negative.

  5. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A very decent and fruity Glen Albyn. Lots of character for a 46% abv.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruit coctail of bananas, peachs and pineapples. Sweet barley and some vanilla. Quite lively.
    • Taste
      Surpisingly mouthfilling and waxy. Pear drops. Honey and vanilla again. Yellow fruit and delicate oak. Cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long. The sweetness remains for a long time. Some wood. A little spicy at the end.

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    A veritable fruit cocktail in the nose, but not what the nose promises. This is a kind of an old whisky. A fruity sweetness on the palate, but a bit flat and quickly forgotten in the finish.
