  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 184 bottles from cask no. 8898
    A refill American oak hogshead, fairly active judging by the full gold colour. An excellent bead indicates good texture. A mild nose feel to start, slightly nose warming, with hints of soft ginger cake, peaches, apricots, and sea grass. As anticipated, there is a smooth texture, quite teeth-coating. Plums and prunes dominate the taste with coconut in the finish. At reduced strength the ginger disappears and is replaced by a scent of almonds - almond slice. Now slightly waxy with a light oily base note.An overall soft texture, sweet with light acidity and considerable peppery spice across the tongue, and desiccated coconut in the finish.

  3. SilentStill scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This longmorn stands between the numerous around 15 years old and those from the 70s. Qualitatively this already plays in the top group and is very mature for 27 years.
    • Nose
      Quite warm nose with a good portion of orange, vanilla crisp with lots of powdered sugar, meringue. After a while more hiking in the citrus direction.
    • Taste
      The alcohol arrives at the exact right intensity on the palate and leaves plenty of room for the again prevailing orange flavors. After the presence of vanilla in the nose, one looks for a bit longer in the mouth, for which one now also has a delicious milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      What lasts longer is the chocolate with a little orange flavor (but unlike Jaffa biscuits)
