  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Typical standard blend, not bad, but far from exceptional or even interesting.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Sweet, light fruity, banana, vanilla, grainy as well. Typical blend-nose. A hint of rubber.
    • Taste
      82 82
      A little pepper, some licorice and drop, sweet. A little hint of smoke now, pretty pale.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Still a little pickering, but most smooth, soft, pale. Sweet, pretty short.

  4. lincolnimp scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    A creamy 70`s blend with a nice fruit angle but the nose is not very expressive.

  7. karloff scored this whisky 75 points Specialist

    A nice pleasant smooth blend.
    • Nose
      Light fruits and flowers marry well with straw and a little bit of citrus.
    • Taste
      Quite smooth and delicate for a whisky that has been sitting in this bottle for over 20 years.
    • Finish
      A medium fruity finish

  8. karloff scored this whisky 75 points Specialist

    My sister in law won this bottle at an auction, I think it was bottled in the early eighties or the late seventies. I really enjoyed it, it was quite smooth and went down well.
