    [August, 2004]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 42 Euro in August, 2004.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state an easy drinkable dram.

    Surprisingly punchy for 40% abv - the nose is actually pretty good, but on the palate it is just okayish and I hope it will improve when the bottle was open for a while
    • Nose
      Fruity, malty, vanilla
    • Taste
      Punchy, peppery, little citrusy
    • Finish
      Long and burning

  5. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This is a good blend, a bit week, would have been better at 46%. Contains a lot of 21 year old Springbank. Why blend such a fine malt? Probably because the casks were not good enough for the much more expensive Springbank, but it is certainly good enough for this fine blended whisky.

    (Rating interval 82-85)
    • Nose
      Some acrylic paint, (if tasted blind I would have guessed a Japanese whisky, Hibiki or something). Vegetables, leek or spring onions, cereal and mixed fresh fruits.
    • Taste
      A good mouth fill, spicy with pepper and nutmeg, quite malty for a blend. honey and salt licorice. Something else, fruity, could it be coconut? Hard to say, it's far back.
    • Finish
      Longer than expected, raw cabbage, some cough medicine and black tea.

    I like it a lot: 87p
