  1. Kilo1 scored this whisky 67 points Expert Junior

    Surprisingly not sharp and secretive whiskey.

  2. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    Oddly enough, found this in a local restaurant. Gave it a try as it was intriguing enough over other standard whisky options. Nice summer dram, though not terribly complex.

  7. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A traditional blend. For the predicate "Blend of the old school", however, he has become over the decades too complacent. Somehow the feeling creeps on me, he wants to please everyone. Unfortunately, he lacks complexity. An "all day blend", unfortunately not anymore. And water is not a good idea ...
    • Nose
      Soft, emphasizes fruity, mild scent. Apricot cream with crunchy malt, maybe (but maybe only) a few small crumbs of peat, a tiny smokestail. Lose enormously with water! What remains is a little malty with a hint of chocolate.
    • Taste
      Caramelized fruits & some honey. In addition very slight smoky notes, which, one thinks, become stronger. Sounds more complex with "water" than it is honestly said ... some smoke, honey-like sweetness, oaky notes, some malt. Drying towards the end.
    • Finish
      Malt, some wood, on which a spoonful of honey runs down, a minimal (woody) dryness. With the addition of water very dry. Honey fights bitter oak. At the same time, the spicy tones slightly numb the tongue.

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Balance
    and light scent of earth, cool steel and rusty. Tart and gentle on the
    palate with echoing floral and whiff of sharp spirits and honey.

    — at The Bowmore House on Islay.
