  1. hs305 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    [October, 1998]  I had this dram during a tasting at Kyrburg. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram 82,5.  My notes state it had a quite rich profile.

    Wonderfully soft. Not a long finish, but a bit tingling. delicious with a cheese or next to a strong cup of coffee. However, not really very exciting. Hence a 9 instead of a 10

    A delicious, uncomplicated single malt!
    • Nose
      first fruity (cherry, plum), sherry, vanilla, barely oak;
    • Taste
      first sweet, then strong spice, tender oak, malt, beautiful oily-buttery body;
    • Finish
      medium to long finish; pleasant warmth, seasoning, getting dry;

  7. JörgW scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Nose: despite only 40% strong in the nose, fresh sherry fruit with vanilla, light sweetness, not too strong wood flavor, a nice nose, for a supermarket whisky surprisingly good.

    Taste: fruity and sweet, very gentle and gentle on the palate, tasty, spicy leaves behind. Get out of the back a bit drier.

    Finish: short to medium, the longest remains a little dry spiciness.

  8. Kensay scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    pleasant, sweet on the nose, soft enough and slightly sweet in taste, balanced, but not particularly catchy
