  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur


    N: Malty-light yet with a superbly weighted oily body.
    T: Same again. This light oiled, well-aged style is simply ideal and faultless in its class.
    F: Dunnage-light on chalky bung cloth.
    C: If this juice wasn’t so precious/expensive [rrp £350, Aug ’18], I’d have a serious drinking problem. Beautiful lubricant.

    Scores a B+

    Room temperature when tasting: 24℃

    Eyes: Light gold and smell. Nose: The alcohol feel is very obvious, the corn is baked, the milk steamed buns, the good corn noodles, a little honey-stained peach meat, wheat ears, straw, fruit hard candy, the smell is relatively simple, lacks change , The layering is not strong. Taste Palate: mainly yellow dried fruits, canned yellow peaches & dried mangoes, peach gummies, bitter base and oak, a little irritating, some baking feeling.
    Final rhyme Finish: medium length, meal bag, whole wheat toast, maltose body: light, round, with tannins

    Nose: 85/100
    Palate: 85/100
    Finish: 83/100
    Body: 83/100
    Overall: 84/100

    Overall: Sure enough, it's right to drink Phidi without expectation

    Tried it blind yesterday at a tasting.
    Nose quite closed, maybe a bit bourbon style smell.
    Taste, didn't pick up it's 26 years, some sweet vanilla notes, a bit oily but also some hars alcohol notes. Not suberp in my opinion. Medium long finish, pretty soft.

      Oak and unmistakably sweet vanilla sugars, this is really delicious !!!
    • Finish
      Wonderfully long and complex.
