  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    It's very good, quite chemical on the nose. Alcohol is very present. The water softened him well.
    • Nose
      Camphor candy. Malabar. Strawberry, raspberry, eucalyptus, bramble, wax, cognac, honey, lemon pie. Wooded. Caramel.
    • Taste
      In mouth on the Loukoum, dried flowers, lemon, mandarin.
      It's beefy in alcohol.
    • Finish
      Final on the pot pourri, loukoum, peach syrup.

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Spicy oranges, peaches and other cooked fruits, sweet oak. With a little water, pronounced notes of honey.
    • Taste
      Powerful enough initially, the fruits are there. Quite mellow in texture, some malty notes. We have the oak and the spices that assert themselves clearly. With water, the Speyside Spice + Honey profile is further highlighted.
    • Finish
      Very long and consistent with the mouth, more fruit with added water.

      Enthusiasm 4/5
      Whisky n ° 1790

    Just opened a bottle, contact me for samples if you're interested.
    • Nose
      Peach, honey, vanilla pudding, apple, basil and blood orange. Very intense.
    • Taste
      First apricot, honey and vanilla, with a hot peppery undertone. Then also some smoke and leather. It can stand a lot of water.
    • Finish
      Apricot, vanilla pudding, honey and smoke.

    Quite old grainy (in a positiv way, very silky `n creamy, with water). Would be perhaps my best grain if it wouldn´t be a malt ;-)

    reminds me of Glen Ord's special releases and old Tali in CS - just quasi smoke-free, incredibly complex, yummy, milder than the Ord, stronger than the Talis, not imitating with quickyfinish and wet keg, unrivaled in modern scrap - keeping that perfect balance - that is exactly my thing - but since the bottle costs significantly 4 digits - I would rather buy affordable similar material - thanks Frank for the sample - a real malting moment

      Venerable old oak, complex, aromatic, heavy and dense, at the same time clear and noble, sweet, slightly dusty licorice, sweet grass, musk, marzipan, apricot kernels, peach skin, sweetened black tea, very clear jasmine blossoms, lilac, orange - rather the peel and some orange peel , later a lot of wax and furniture polish, some resin, sanding dust of old oak wood including the patina of years, with more time it becomes more and more fruity - yellow fruits, interwoven, cooked together, perfume, a bunch of flowers and a fruit platter combine the result does not leave the Malthead more going on - each breath is slightly different, brings something new, now even a tiny touch very heavily oxidized smoke

      What a mighty start to be without being alcoholic, even the one drop that I have carefully placed on the tongue, explodes sweetly and with beautiful spicy pulsating 70's oak (I guess it's the age of the trees used for barrel construction back then ) Teenagers, sweet fritters, some apricot bitterness forms a delicious contrast, crystallized lemon and flowers fill the mouth, a gossamer-like dryness is on the tongue - a delicate creamy astringent film of tree sap and wax, nuts and gingerbread,
    • Finish
      93 93
      Nuts, wood dust, chocolate, toasted almonds, geranium leaves, grapefruit peel, citrus drops - very long and very elegant

    Convalmore 36 yo 1977

    (58%, OB 2013, 2980 btl.)

    Nose: fairly restrained, even a little quiet, considering its alcohol volume. It shows soft fruits (orange lemonade, apples, kiwi, maybe green mango). Some almonds and waxed oak. Honey. Big minty notes. In the background also a little moss and very soft herbs. Quite elegant, sure, but… Mouth: a similar (slightly unripe) fruitiness, with more grapefruit and lemons now. Blossom honey and a creamy, biscuity sweetness. A little paraffin. The first part of the palate is where this whisky really shines. Then it grows sharper and goes towards moss again, some earthy notes, liquorice. Mint. Heavy spices towards the end (pepper, ginger, nutmeg). Finish: long, with warming spices, apples and fresh lemons.

    It’s not very fruity, it’s not very spicy, it’s not very sweet, each element comes in waves and changes quickly after. Overall a complex but subtle whisky that’s very tasty yet never blew my socks off. Very expensive: around € 800.

    Score: 91/100

    A very powerfull (and wonderfull) whisky. Tobaco, chocolate, honey, and grassy taste. Very fresh, powerfull and smooth at the same time... a taste that sticks on the palate for a very long time. And this finish...

    • Nose
      Strong, elegant. Juicy yellow apples, wet light wood. Some wax, faint smoke. Behind it peaches, apricots and mango. Mint chocolate, a touch of eucalyptus, summer meadow. Fresh walnuts, almonds, some marzipan. Currants, pickled lemons with a hint of salt.
    • Taste
      Oily. Yellow apples, honey, cornflakes, a trace of candle wax. Milk coffee, nougat, hazelnut. White chocolate mousse, lemon cream, some cocoa powder.
