  2. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Not bad for the lens hood, weak fragrance / aftertaste is compensated for by a sufficiently dense and deep taste, fusion, smoothness and pitchnost are attached; whiskey, given the crafty bottle and box, suitable for a gift, and if for yourself, then for such money there is a mass of more worthy single of the lightning.
    • Nose
      Flat, subtle, dusty-woody, light malt notes, caramel, weak lemon tones.
    • Taste
      Sweet, caramel, light notes of spicy oak, pepper, ginger, creamy sweetness, shortbread, dried fruits
    • Finish
      Oak-ginger, caramel, light herbal bitterness, oily.

  3. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    50% grain, 30% Tomatin and 20% made up of 30 or so other malts.
    N: Modern, aged blend with notes of butter-cream sherry and corn.
    T: Cloying
    F: Salivating sugary cream, but it’s the previous 1954 Glen Grant that still pervades my palate.
    C: Tasty but too sugary [and simple] for my palate. I can quickly tire of this style, though it can make for a great session dram.
