  1. pianoman scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Very elegant, round and complex. Mellow sherry, honey, spring flowers. Grated orange peel, yellow raisins. Raspberries with vanilla sauce and some fresh mint. Damp forest floor, moss, tree bark, pine cones. Old library, a trace of leather.
    • Taste
      Oily with some pepper and beeswax. Dark fruits with honey. Marzipan, a touch of nougat, creamy dark chocolate. Orange marmalade and some oak flavor.

  2. dramspotter scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    This is a rather wonderful stylish spirit with no harshness; the one major criticism is that the effect simply doesn't stay very strong in the finish but tails off to a very slight pleasant aftertaste
    • Nose
      tannins, fruity, dark oranges, sandalwood
    • Taste
      spicy oranges, full of flavour; not finding the ABV offputting
    • Finish
      too short, a nice mild sweetness and no bitterness; again the oranges make a resurgence

  5. RichardMayston did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Really near perfect, I haven't found anyone who doesn't love this. A smidgen more power would have been good, but really this is one of the greats. 
    • Nose
      A glorious complex nose. Wax, tobacco, old spices. Lots of books and crannies to sniff out. 
    • Taste
      Ginger oranges and chocolate. Roll it around, savor, then sadly let it dissolve, and trickle away. 
    • Finish
      Marmalade and oak. A beautiful afterglow.

  7. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very subtle whisky, full flavor and yet soft.
    • Nose
      Leather and shoe polish are immediately absorbed by the smell, strong sherry tones. Raisins, spicy, cinnamon. Sweet, caramel, honey, also some cocoa.
    • Taste
      Full, firm and yet soft, subtle. Zot, caramel and honey, some chocolate and raisins too. Somewhat bitter undertone.
    • Finish
      Slightly stimulating now, quite long, somewhat bitter. wood tones. Honey, vanilla, caramel.
