  1. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2002]  I had this dram during a FOSM club tasting.
    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 this 87,5. For detailed notes see tasting note below.

    It has a medium oily texture.  The mouthfeel is light and smooth but it coats the tongue only.  Water is not needed.
    • Nose
      citrus fruits (that vanish very quickly), some wood, hints of sulphur, freshly cutted grass, cocoa beans, an enjoyable sweetness
    • Taste
      raisins, anise, malt, a nice sweetness with hints of dark chocolate, gets slowly drying - with water the sweetness grows and turns suddenly into dryness, looses complexity
    • Finish
      very enjoyable with slight bitter notes
