  1. Pikehunter did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Distillery Note;Initially, rich fruits on the nose, notably ripe peaches. Vanilla, treacle toffee, milk chocolate and a hint of lime develop over time. The fruits carry over from the nose onto the palate, while the milk chocolate becomes dark. Spicy aniseed and liquorice notes develop.

    Lengthy in the finish, with Colombian coffee, oak tannins, cinnamon and a sprinkling of black pepper

  3. Binh77 scored this whisky 92 points Newbie

    A great whisky that is still very lively at 40 years old, rich, thick, multi-layer, complex, well-ballanced, mouthful and delicious. It is the best whisky I have ever tasted, even better than any bottle in the Diageo 2020 Prima & Ultima collection.
