4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.47 points

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Those older batches are less peaty but more fruity and floral.
    • Nose
      Very elegant peat, lemon oil, the overall impression is so powerful and fresh, much better than the modern batches.
    • Taste
      Intense palate, also have some delicate components, baked apple, lemon oil, quite floral and buttery
    • Finish
      Medium, very floral

  2. mikespike scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A lower rating again from my side. Based on a shared sample 2013.
    This was pretty weak in all aspects. Did the bottle maturation wipe out some of the awaited flavors? Not sure what happened exactly but this 10cl sample was not worth the money. I tased a CS bacth 004 afterwards and found this so much more delightful and rich. 83P in my books. Maybe there are much better bottles of this?

    Score for a Cinzano bottle from 1980 and a Cinzano bottle from around 1975. Both scored 92 points
