  1. moviemaniac scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    2014 edition:

    The peat is nearly gone (which is about the only gripe I have with it, if I really wanted to search for one), but everything else is superb! This really is proper, old-style, no frills (mostly?) ex-sherry matured whisky, made by hand in a working museum, filled into great wood and carefully looked after. A very sexy dram in a Marilyn Monroe class kinda way.

    92/100

  6. schengel10 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful, mature, somewhat idiosyncratic longrow top; but in direct comparison I prefer the same age jumper ...!
    [Color] copper;
    • Nose
      ripe fruit, sherry, trace smoke, spice, nuts;
    • Taste
      strong full-bodied, dark fruit, nuts, cocoa, some smoke, ash, dry sherry, spicy oak, pepper;
    • Finish
      long, spicy peppery salty finish; aftertaste smoke;

  7. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A fresh and invigorating bolt, initially more like Springbank than Longrow, but smoke and peaty notes still appear in development and everything falls into place; slightly watered, there is a lack of fortress, but otherwise very, very worthy product.
    • Nose
      Open, fresh, mineral-apple, lemonade, floral, lemon-orange notes, in the background malt, raw wood, crushed grain, weak smoke-peat tones; in general, more like a Springbank.
    • Taste
      Calm, smooth, oak-pepper with resin, coniferous notes, cream, fondant, spicy oak, candied ginger.
    • Finish
      Continuation of taste - resin, young pine needles, lemon, orange peels, red and green mango skin, candied fruits from exotic fruits, very long, at the end, a variety of sweet berry notes come to the fore.

  8. TheWhiskyDungeon scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      tropical fruit, earthy, slightly smoky, leather, straw, hazelnut, charcoal
    • Taste
      charcoal, ash, ripe fruit, pepper, cinnamon, creamy, oily, caramel, green apple
