3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.04 points

  1. Jeep51 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    We are entitled to expect a little more than a whiskey of 33 years. It's not bad just a little too common and simple
    • Nose
      Relatively pungent and alcoholic. Many flowers and pastry notes. A little fresh fruit, cereals and malt. Unconvincing and relatively young.
    • Taste
      More powerful, more dense. Sweet texture. Pleasant mix of fruits (pear and peach) and we discover then young wood and spices.
    • Finish
      Long enough. Dried. Pepper and very light smoke.

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Misses complexity for me to be really good. Also a tad too bitter for my taste.
    • Nose
      Malty and yeasty. Flowery notes. Heather and hay. Wet stones at the background. A bit bland.
    • Taste
      Now more fruit of cooked apples, pompelmous and pink grapefruit. Ginger and cardamon. Some metalic notes as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long. More bitterness and slightly peppery. Liquorice.
