  5. Slick scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Pretty hard to beat this one in that price range...
    Probably one of the top 5 after 2013 considering the current prices of whisky in today's market.

  6. Ivynor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    An exceptional value for money, in the line of "three must have" (Revival, Uigeadail and Corryvreckan).
    • Nose
      Marmalade of oranges, woody notes, dried fruit, toffee, vanilla cream, With aeration, a little orange liquor, spices, and prunes.
    • Taste
      Sweet and creamy, very sherry. A certain freshness. Perfect balance of sugar and alcohol. We find the prune, bitter cocoa, wood, vanilla, grapes very concentrated in sugar (late harvest), hazelnut and perhaps almond paste. A lot of spices on the finish and vegetal touches.
    • Finish
      Peppery finish. Coffee. More marked dry sherry.

  7. Malt Hans scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Dried fruit aroma, figs, raisins, orange, vanilla, banana, apple, lime and heather honey. Vanilla sweet taste, anise, ginger, pepper, mint, banana and apple pie. Medium long, fruity and malty end.

  8. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    An ultra classic, widely acclaimed by a large majority of single malt lovers. He is certainly well done, but still he can not seduce me personally.
    • Nose
      Very sherry, on caramelized cooked fruits (plum, grapes). A small peppermint pecks the nose afterwards. An acid note then attacks the nostrils.
    • Taste
      In the first soaking of lips, sweetness is invited but is quickly replaced by a rise in power of alcohol. Cooked fruits are not hidden; they are present. Bitter dark chocolate is also felt.
    • Finish
      Average. Alcohol scratches my throat a little too much. The wood dries the tongue a little. The presence "sherry" fruit is still well established, it sticks almost to the teeth.

  9. getz scored this whisky 97 points Expert Junior

    best whisky ever

  10. Jeep51 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sherry on nuts (especially nuts), dried fruits, fig and prune. Pretty cool. After aeration, cooking, rancio and macerated fruits make their appearance.
    • Taste
      Pretty powerful. Unlike the nose that is on the fruit, the mouth is marked by mocha and cocoa.
    • Finish
      Medium long on bitter cocoa
