  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Notes by producer;

    Richer than most Br bottlings but still easy drinking, this dram ramps up the spice and chocolate notes and received praise from whisky writers worldwide.

    Cask details;
    Three refill hogsheads distilled in 1992.

    Tasting Notes;

    Nose
    Sweet and floral, with grassy meadows, straw, honeysuckle and touches of Honeydew melon.

    Palate
    Spicy to start, with brown sugar softening cinnamon and nutmeg heat. Heather honey and milk chocolate notes develop, along with hazelnut brittle and sweet vanilla.

    Finish
    Warming and spicy, fading to clove studded oranges.

  7. ThS scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tasting notes from TWE:Nose: Sweet, with honeydew melon, grassy meadows, straw and floral hints.
    Palate: Sweet wood, honey, flower petals, hazelnut brittle, cinnamon and chocolate touches.

  8. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: Balanced and composed as well as being uber-vibrant
    T: This delivers! A full, broad delivery with a sour, creamy, deep development. Grain whisky can only dream of this elemental complexity.
    F: Standard finish. lovely finish overall
    C: Really decent although nothing outstanding, but Bruichladdich fans will love this larger than life slugger. One for many occasions.
