  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very interesting, own Royal Lochnagar, tropical notes, but also stale storage notes, but then everything fits together again in the mouth. He's even a 90-91 there, but the nose pulls the overall rating down noticeably.
    • Nose
      Very unique nose, very dense and hearty, but difficult to pin down notes, apart from a somewhat strange minty note, almonds maybe, limestone, some papaya and rhubarb, very strange
    • Taste
      Papaya, nice honey, fresh mint, apricot jelly, nice subtle oak, honeydew melon, some mineral notes, salt, quince, raisins, almonds, hint of gauze bandages
    • Finish
      Quince, ginger, almonds, honeydew melon, apricot, medium length, warming, linen
