  4. motorm4n scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    When I bought this bottle it cost me less than €150 and that isn't so long ago. Ok a few years have passed. When my eldest son reached legal drinking age, I opened it up and he had his first dram with dad. It took us close to two years before we got to the end of the bottle, some may say that was too long, but we enjoyed ever drop of it thouroughly. In fact, I filled the last 0.1L into a small bottle, sealed & labelled it and gave it to my son when he reached 21.

  5. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [February, 2006]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 2918 that I bought for 61 Euro in July, 2005.  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 it 87,5.  My notes state the typical fat and oily "Rare Malt" profile that demands a fair share of water to open up.  After that it gets sweet and approachable.  Enjoyable, but not remarkable...

  9. Allandale scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A medium- to light-bodied, sweet and low-peat whisky with no pronounced sherry notes. Restrained , opens up with water. An after-dinner dram?
    • Nose
      Gentle hint of peat, like a bonfire at a distance. Baked apples. Drying, newly cut grass. Malty, cereal and cooked mash. A whiff of beeswax  and vanilla.Spicy,licorice and crushed aniseed.
    • Taste
      Light, clean and sweet. Creamy with traces of walnuts.
    • Finish
      Woody edge, slowly erased by the vanilla and walnut notes.

  10. Cipidos scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Little peated, hints of fruit and citrus.
    Taste: Sweet and spicy
    Finish: lightly peated,  spicy
