  1. Allandale scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Body; Very soft indeed and smooth.
    • Nose
      Pronouncedly fruity and winey.
    • Taste
      The port seems to bring out butterscotch notes. It also adds sweeter, winey notes,and melds beautifully with the spiciness of Glenmorangie.
    • Finish
      Soothing,soporific  , relaxing. In no hurry to go.

    This one is noticeably subtler than the Quinta Ruban. It takes a few minutes to open up on the nose and palate, but, even after that, it is difficult to disentangle. Where the Quinta Ruban is bold and clear, this is quiet and diffuse. A good dram, though.
    • Nose
      Caramel, new oak and freshly cut lemon/lime peels, maple syrup, blackberries, dried cranberries, vanilla and menthol (pink Canada Mints)
    • Taste
      Red berries, oak, a rush of cinnamon and nutmeg, blackberry preserve, a bit of dark chocolate covered espresso beans, and walnut oil.
    • Finish
      Soft sweet citrus and a slow fade to soft oak tannins, pink Canada Mints, and faint raisins.

    A typical port nose. Although discreet, but still fruity and sour tart. The taste is dominated by peppery woody aromas, which are reflected in the finish again. The taste and the finish let miss the fruitiness of the nose, tart and sharp wood notes dominate. A rock solid malt and one of my first wood finish which I should enjoy at the beginning of my "whisky career". It's been a long time since I found an original sample in my sample box.
    • Nose
      Sweet berries stand out of the glass. A subtle tart note flows from the overripe fruits while tough streaks run slowly back into the glass after panning. A touch of cherries mixed with a subtle orange aroma, the alcohol is pleasantly integrated. The tart, acidic note will produce more intense, spicy wood tones. An undefinable flavor for me now dominates the taste, somehow the aroma makes furniture polish and thyme?!?
    • Taste
      Spicy oak dominates the first impression, subtle sharpness becomes more intense. Peppery notes mingle with tart oak tones, slightly sourish fruit comes from the bitter but spicy wood. The second sip of a mixture of pepper, chilli and spicy wood fires on the palate. In the taste is hardly fruit, but only sharp wood perceptible.
    • Finish
      The taste still exudes these sharpened oak tones which blend seamlessly into the finish. A touch of liquorice mixes with the sharpening wood, a cozy warmth fills the entire mouth area. For a long time the finish exudes a discreetly sharp mouthfeel.
