  1. hs305 scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    [March, 2008]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 006 that I bought for 323 Euro in September, 2007.

    [September, 2009]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 019 that I bought for 280 Euro in March, 2008.

    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 92,5 and 95.  My notes state an unbelievable complex and balanced dram with no signs of over-aging.  This is sherry lover's heaven!  It is quite comparable in its profile to its sister releases but still significantly different.
