  1. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    cool stuff, independent, old, strong yummy
    • Nose
      spicy sweet, fruity oranges, apples, mint, old herbs that rise oily, oak - old, complex, charming, malt and roasted notes, a hint of smoke, nice dense - full - strong nose, after the first sip there is a moderate cellar
    • Taste
      fruity first sour, becoming sweeter, very ripe apple, intensive mushrooms on wet old rotten wood, very spicy mouth-filling Camembert cheese crust, intense oak, very spicy, peppery, intense vegetal notes on the tongue,
    • Finish
      very long spicy spicy woody sweet finish that still carries oranges

  4. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur


    N: Again, we are talking about a nutty/coppery > sulphury number, though this one’s a little off-kilter.
    T: Possesses a distinct coppery/metallic note with spirity linseed oil overtones I’ve had before from a Speyside Distillery bottling [blog] - also a 22yo. With water it’s a touch richer but there’s little hope for this one. Probably a non-compromising astringent [Mannochmore-esque] malt when first opened.
    F: Gone.
    C: I thought this would give more, yet it just scrapes the score board. Very likely a faded bottle. Maybe my palate isn’t the best either.

    [Provisionally scores a D-]

    Colour: Gold
    Nose: Oaky, smooth, spicy, floral, slightly smoky, on vanilla
    and some honey. Cleaner and rougher that the Cooper’s choice.
    Taste: Smooth,
    spicy, oaky, slightly bitter, floral, aromatic, on ginger, peat smoke, vanilla,
    and a touch of honey. Complex. The finish is medium, spicy, slightly aromatic,
    fragrant and bitter, on tonic water, oak spices and some light peat
    Impression: A good and intense Glen Garioch, with some candied ginger http://www.whisky-news.com/En/tasting24.html#May13
