  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A well-balanced highland park, a great example of old-style whisky with intensive flavours.
    • Nose
      Fresh and shy, engine oil mixed with butter, rotten celery.
    • Taste
      Old purse, fresh herbs, then floral and honey, dirty engine, shoe polish, slightly drying
    • Finish
      Fresh mints, long and chocolaty

  2. John Barleycorn scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

  3. ARDBERG scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    needs time in the open bottle, about 4 months @ about 40% filling level did wonders and the whisky went from 88 to 92 points.

  4. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    C: This bottle was a game changer for me back in the day. It's hard to believe that only six years ago it was the same price as 3 HP 12’s - at the time, a pricey purchase, but now looking as cheap as chips. Regardless of price, a taste sensation and no looking back.
