  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Tasted with, among other things, the '95 SV 18yo on 46%. It was striking that especially the smell of this Van Wees was more intense than that of SV.
    • Nose
      Fruity, fresh, citrus, vanilla, floral. Later it also becomes more spicy.
    • Taste
      Slightly peppery, sweet and fruity, orange. Some menthol, honey, and some vanilla.
    • Finish
      Very light peppers, fruity, some peach, honey, vanilla. Medium aftertaste

    [November, 2014]  I had this dram during a community tasting near Bonn.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 85.  I took no detailed notes.  We drank bottle no. 67 that I bought for 53 Euro in September, 2014.

  10. The Macallan scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Time and water are the key for this one. A lovely fruitbomb with a small bite.

      Pure: fruity, some wood, friendly but locked after a while some fruit emerges again (pears)! (Reduced: pear drops (pineapple), peaches, perfuming and not aggressive)
    • Taste
      Pure: soft and tickeling with fruity flavors (Reduced: Gentle, fruity, mild, medium round)
    • Finish
      Pure: Warm, slightly sweet with some pepper (Reduced: lighter, creamy and peppery))
