  1. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    How can anyone expect to sell this for 1700 euro on the Marketplace here when it is still for sale for 1240 euro from Whisky Antique today?

    How do you as a seller justify your high price tag?????

    Potential sister cask 1621 (and 1629) from Signatory indicate that this may have been distilled on 16.06.1970.

  3. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    This is definitely heavily sherried, with the obvious oak notes, but the flavours stay so rounded (and intense) that it seduced me almost instantly. With a little less sourness this could have been out of this world.
    • Nose
      Heavy sherry but in a very positive way. Surprisingly fresh fruity notes: baked apples, redcurrant jam, juicy plums, blood oranges. Then some dried fruits, mainly raisins and prunes. Pleasant raspberry vinegar syrup. Some tropical hardwood. Something ethereal. Lots of oak polish and wax. A very light whiff of smoke, even earthy / farmy touches after a while.
    • Taste
      Sweet and quite syrupy. Sour cherries, raisins, redcurrant. Waxy undertones, beautiful herbal touches (cinnamon, cardamom, clove). Hints of aniseed. Again more than just a hint of smoke. Turning towards bitter and sour balsamic notes in the end.
    • Finish
      Very long, quite herbal, with the same dried fruits and restrained bitterness and mint.

    Very good whisky with a superb nose!
    • Nose
      hugely intense, dried fruits (especially prunes), slightly medicinal and fresh, fudge and a very bit of smoke
    • Taste
      medicinal, herbs, fruity and fresh (gets even "fresher" with addition of few drops of water)
    • Finish
      long on herbs, slighly bitter (like "Kräuterschnapps") and still fresh
