  1. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    12/2017 Mortlach, vultures & roar BYOB Utrecht
    • Nose
      Great nose with sherry notes - forest fruits and pine resin. I think the oaky notes made place for great pine resin wood and leather flavours. Custard, pepper, tobacco leafs, cherries, brown spices cookies, a small trace of a meat note and lavender.
    • Taste
      Leather, liquorice and forest fruits - plums and dark cherries.
    • Finish
      Leather, forest fruits, syrup, strawberries, cardemon and ginger cookies.

    Very balanced, old style classic - a top sherry single malt. It can't get much better. Fantastic!
    • Nose

      Toffee galore, finest old sherry wood, milk chocolate, dried fruits, dates, figs, spices, nutmeg, cooked fruits, jam, old books - superb!
    • Taste
      97 97
      Extremely creamy, mellow, thick, sirupy, good sweetness, more milk chocolate, toffee, coffee with cream, more cooked fruits, oranges, xmas spice - excellent!
    • Finish
      95 95

  5. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 92 points Specialist

    Special dram. Very powerful and intense.
    • Nose
      Raisins, Sultanas, Burned Oak, some charcoal. Immense intensity. Surprisingly lot of power for a 50 year old whisky
    • Taste
      Thick. A bit less powerful. Great thick mouthfeel. Leather notes.
    • Finish
      Intense and long. More dried fruits and oak. Gets bitter and dry, the only down point for this dram.

  7. Derekyu928 scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    【First】: Very dark amber alcoholic sensation Shabby astringent vanilla (just like vanilla essence) Prunes Dried persimmon 【Middle】: Body bulges firmly Ralph lauren mango red wine like not much wheat feeling 【Finish】: the entire oral cavity is irritating rather than oily, like rain leaves like rain (image after autumn leaves finished) iron wood timber blunt stimulation on the tongue http: //www.whiskylink .com /? p = 12470

  8. Sonett scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    A long time since I enjoyed a dram as complex and well balanced as this. Adding water did not give any new experiences.
    • Nose
      Heavy Sherry notes with Plums (Plum pudding), Apricots, Raisins. A hint of Cognac, Leather and Woodiness
    • Taste
      An entry with a lot of sweet fruits. Plums dried fruits and raisins that fades away and a oaky woodiness appears for a minute before a bitter tast of almonds appears.
    • Finish
      Long warm woody finish that stays for an eternity.
