  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 65 points Connoisseur

    Barely drinkable. Perhaps on par with a JW Gold Label.
    • Nose
      62 62
      Weak hints of honey and charred burnt oak.
    • Taste
      65 65
      Soft floral notes and a very mild upcoming of sweetness.
    • Finish
      67 67
      It flows through easily like water, only having the taste of oak and nothing else. Slight burn on the throat.

  2. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose is old whisky through and through, the palate and finish let it down.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The smell of old whisky, mature fruitiness with some delicious honey and delicate flowers. Little touch of leather and oak.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Subtle arrival with soft oak and mature red apple and hints of old bouquets. Delicate wood spice, slight tingle.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Little weak on the finish, nice but nothing to celebrate.
